The Nationals partnership with Career Gear includes the collection of suits and ties from on-field personnel and front office staff. Additionally, Career Gear will identify a beneficiary to receive a suit made by a tailor used by Nationals players to be presented during a pre-game recognition ceremony at the end of the baseball team’s season.


 “Washington Nationals fans continue to demonstrate their incredible generosity with their contributions to another successful drive,” said Nationals Vice President of Communications and Community Relations Chartese Burnett. “Throughout the team’s five years in the District, our fans have stepped up to the plate time and again to help those less fortunate then themselves.
