Here's a smorgasbord of organizations coming together for a good cause: Tomorrow from 12:30 to 2pm, Joseph Abboud is teaming up with some of New York's biggest football stars at J.C. Penney to put together care packages for war veterans. Explains Racked National: "The initiative is a collaboration between IAVA (Iraq Afghanistan Veterans of America) and Joseph Abboud, whose Welcome Home Joe initiative has already provided Iraq and Afghanistan veterans with $1 million in gift certificates to purchase professional clothing as they transition back into civilian life."
