MILWAUKEE -- When looking for a new job, first impressions can mean the world. That's why getting men and women in Milwaukee the right look, so that they can "wow" potential employers during interviews is so important.

"It's really important to provide professional clothing to men and women because we all know the first impression is so important," Jeri Kavanaugh said.

It is normal to see business attire in the offices at Schlitz Park. On Wednesday, April 6th, clothes donations were pouring in.

"We're hoping that with the Bucks, we can get a real big splash here," Jason Abraham with the law firm Hupy & Abraham said.

Hupy & Abraham has teamed up with the Milwaukee Bucks to help people work their way into a new job.

"We want people to be really confident when they go for those interviews," Abraham said.

Donations of professional clothing benefit the "Bottomless Closet" -- a program that provides the clothing to men and women who are re-entering the workforce.

Those who made a donation on Wednesday scored Bucks tickets to the team's home finale.

This effort is helping to build up members of our community.

"We want the person to feel, from head to toe, confident about themselves," Kavanaugh said.

"I think anything you can do to help people get out there and be employed and just feel positive about themselves and give back to the community, it's just so touching and it just feels great to do it," Abraham said.

Monetary donations are also accepted by "Bottomless Closet" officials.
