TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2017 /CNW/ -- Moores Clothing for Men and Kenneth Cole Productions launched the AWEARNESS Kenneth Cole collection in November 2015 with the mission to create tailored clothing so the modern man can "look good, for good." This Remembrance Day, Moores and Kenneth Cole Productions are proud to announce that the AWEARNESS Kenneth Cole collection has generated over $350,000 in donations since the program's inception to support True Patriot Love Foundation and their mission to assist Canadian military Veterans. "The donations generated from sales of the AWEARNESS collection have been impressive and we are proud of our partnership to support our Veterans and their families," says Richard Bull, Vice President of Merchandising at Moores.
The benefitting charity partnering in this mission has a strong history supporting the military community. True Patriot Love Foundation is a national charity dedicated to providing essential support and resources to Canadian military members, Veterans and their families. Among many other programs, True Patriot Love Foundation pairs ill and injured soldiers with Canadian business leaders on ambitious expeditions across the globe helping build awareness of the challenges Veterans face when they transition to civilian life.
"True Patriot Love sincerely thanks Moores, and the AWEARNESS Kenneth Cole collection, for its incredible support and partnership," said Bronwen Evans, CEO of True Patriot Love Foundation. "Together, we are able to assist Veterans who are transitioning to civilian life by providing access to critical programs and services that will directly help them on their journey."
The AWEARNESS Kenneth Cole collection features slim fit suits, sport coats, dress shirts and ties. Also included in the collection is the AWEAR-TECH line of performance apparel introduced last Fall. The tailored clothing and sportswear items feature 37.5 fabric technology that includes advanced cooling technology. Both collections will continue to generate a one percent contribution from all gross sales of AWEARNESS Kenneth Cole products sold exclusively at Moores.
