Rescue Mission Residents Suit Up

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – Some say to do your best you have to look your best.

When you are hunting for a job it can make all the difference.

A well tailored suit isn’t cheap and it can make all the difference in the world, even if it does need some fine-tuning.

Monday the Rescue Mission held a private event at the Rescue Mission’s Treasure House Thrift Store and Donation Center.

Suits were donated by an anonymous donor and Despos Tailoring donated their time and tailoring skills to help members of their program find a suit that fits perfectly.

For William Starbuck, who is in a program at the Rescue Mission, a new suit means new opportunities.

Starbuck said with his new suit he will wear it for graduation, job interviews, and church.

He also says it makes him feel like a better person, which something he has been working toward for a few months.

When Starbuck came to the Rescue Mission he said he was a broken man who suffered from drug addiction, depression and anxiety.

“I was homeless for a little over a month and I was feeling lIke i just din’t want to live any more and I was feeling like that just wasn’t acceptable anymore,” said Starbuck.

He continued by saying that it makes him feel like a new man.
