When Mark Russell heard the Cool Clothes Closet needed donations for high school boys who needed something to wear to the prom, he knew he could help.
He owns Mark Russell Clothing, a men’s custom clothing company, that is based in New York City and has a West Boca Raton showroom location.
The company focuses on creating custom-fit, high-end clothing for busy professionals.
So, when they company heard that the Cool Clothes Closet needed more clothing for the guys, they stepped in to help.
The closet is run by Lynda Walsh, who saw a need for providing youth in need with clothing in a way that they would shop or for clothes in a store. For prom season, she had dresses for girls and needed more male options.
Russell’s company helped outfit 20 men with pants, shirt and a coat that was tailored to fit them.
