WASHINGTON, DC – February 23, 2017 – The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) (www.dvnf.org) is announcing a new partnership with Tailored Brands that will send suits and other business attire to veterans in search of employment.
On Saturday, February 25th, a job fair will be held in Detroit, hosted by the Detroit VA. Through a new partnership with Tailored Brands, the parent company of Joseph A. Bank, DVNF has sent a shipment of new suits to this job fair to help veterans who are transitioning from the military and into a civilian job.
Veterans in search of employment will have the opportunity to pick out a suit and no cost to them. In addition, DVNF will provide these veterans with Visa gift cards to cover the cost of getting their new suit tailored, so they don’t incur any unnecessary financial burden.
“We want these vets to be able to dress for success. By providing them with high-quality business attire, vets will feel more confident, and better prepared for job interviews,” said DVNF CEO, Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj Ret.).
“Plus, buying a suit can be a major financial burden that many don’t have the luxury to afford. So, we’re excited to help these veterans dress for the job they deserve.”
This is DVNF’s first shipment exclusively containing business attire, and the organization hopes to continue this type of effort at more veteran job fairs throughout the country in the future.

The Disabled Veterans National Foundation exists to provide critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom.
We achieve this mission by:
- Providing an online resource database that allows veterans to navigate the complex process of seeking benefits that they are entitled to as a result of their military service, as well as additional resources they need.
- Offering direct financial support to veteran organizations that address the unique needs of veterans, and whose missions align with that of DVNF.
- Providing supplemental assistance to homeless and low-income veterans through the Health & Comfort program and various empowerment resources.
- Serving as a thought leader on critical policy issues within the veteran community, and educating the public accordingly.
