On Tuesday afternoon, the New York Yankees held the second day of HOPE Week 2014 (Helping Others Persevere & Excel) by celebrating Career Gear.

Located in lower Manhattan near City Hall, Career Gear is an organization that helps promote the economic independence of low-income men by providing financial literacy training, professional attire and career development tools. 

Yankees Captain Derek Jeter, Jacoby Ellsbury, Hiroki Kuroda, Brian Roberts, and Alfonso Soriano visited Career Gear’s office, where they helped measure and outfit men with suits provided by DKNY.

Career Gear participants and their families, along with administrators from Career Gear, were guests of the Yankees for Tuesday night’s 7:05 p.m. game vs. Toronto at Yankee Stadium.
