HANOVER, MA …
Dropping your clothes off at the dry cleaners is usually thought of as a thankless chore. Lapels Dry Cleaning, with its clothing drive to benefit the Big Brother/Big Sister of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, is guaranteeing a hearty thank you to all who contribute to this very worthy cause.
Starting May 4 and running through May 19, Lapels customers and the general public are welcome to donate any gently used clothing items including: Men’s, Women’s and Children’s clothing, coats, jackets, shoes ( any season or size). Household items such as linens, sheets, blankets, towels, drapes, comforters, afghans, curtains, fabric and purses are also accepted.
“This is our 10th year conducting a clothes drive to benefit Big Brother/Big Sister and our customers have always stepped up for this wonderful cause” said Kevin Dubois, CEO of Lapels Dry Cleaning. “Having added several new Lapels Dry Cleaning stores in Massachusetts, we’re hoping 2013 will be the best clothing drive ever.”
Lapels Dry Cleaning has nearly 20 locations in Massachusetts and one in Lincoln, Rhode Island. Clothes collected by Lapels Dry Cleaning will be sold by Big Brother/Big Sister to high-end thrift stores. The net proceeds from those sales are donated towards Big Brother/Big Sister programs.
“This annual clothing drive is actually something our customers look forward to because it kills two birds with one stone. On one hand, they get to help a very worthy cause raise money without it costing them a dime out of their pocket. On the other, they’re removing unwanted items from their home. It’s the proverbial win-win where everybody wins,” said Dubois.
