The Suit Up Network of the Staten Island Community Partners, Inc. was founded by Angela D’Aiuto & partnered with local businesses, to provide a helping hand to empower men & women with a new business wardrobe when returning or entering the workforce & access to support and resources to succeed & to move forward. Self-sufficiency and support to build one’s career is very important for low income men and women, and young adults. Seeing a need and meeting that need by offering opportunity and resources is key to the Suit Up Network. Post Hurricane Sandy, Angela was assisting a local food pantry and relief efforts and saw the need to assist , women, especially who have lost their apartments and with that their business wardrobes. The need is greatest now with steady unemployment and victims of the Hurricane Sandy.
