Tampa, Florida -- It's the time of year for spring cleaning. And, the University of South Florida is asking locals to give back through their Suit-a-Bull program.

You can making a difference by giving and organizers are making a difference by helping students.

They're stylin' and smilin'. Dressed to the nines. Ready to embark on their future. And it doesn't cost a dime! Just think of Suit-a-bull as a big, giant "lending" closet for students. 

Organizers like Katherine Gonzalez call it a win-win.

"With the way the economy is today, being able to get a job, being able to make that great first impression in those first seven seconds. That's what it takes," she says.

All it takes is donations to keep the closest stocked and a little time. Students can stop by and try on the duds to get studded up.

The program, in its third year, is sponsored by Enactus, an on-campus student organization. Borrowers are only asked to leave an ID for collateral.

It helped Freshman Francesca Morea who came in at the last minute before a job interview.

"Everyone liked it, they said it looked very professional... more professional than some of the people they had interviewed previously. So I thought that was a plus," she says.

A plus for Morea and dozens of others and a proud moment for organizers like Gonzalez.

"Oh, I definitely feel like we are making a difference in our community."
