Congress Ditches Clothes For Good Cause
Settle down. It's part of the third annual Congressional Dress for Success Challenge, which pits representatives against senators to see which group can give away the most suits. The business attire will benefit D.C. women-in-need who can't afford to buy suits and are transitioning into the workforce. Senators won back in 2010, and the House won the challenge in 2009.
Honorary Co-Chairwomen Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu and Texas Republican Rep. Kay Granger will each give a suit donation during a 10:15 a.m. reception.
The challenge, sponsored by FexEx, will run from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Senate-side donations can be dropped off at the Reserve Officers Association. House-side donations can be dropped off at a FedEx truck parked near the Capitol South Metro Station.
