SANTA FE (AP) - The New Mexico Department of Corrections is asking for donated dress suits aimed at helping inmates prepare for the business world.
Corrections officials recently launched a suit donation drive with the goal of giving suits to outgoing inmates.
The department's "Dress for Success" program seeks to teach inmates how to tie and tie and insert cufflinks.
Officials say the program is designed to help inmates start over and reinvent themselves after serving time.
