Lapels Dry Cleaning Kicks Off 14th Annual Clothing Drive to Benefit Big Brother Big Sister

April 07, 2017 // Franchising.com // HANOVER, MA - Lapels Dry Cleaning will host their annual clothing drive to benefit Big Brother Big Sister organizations starting April 22 and running through May 7. Lapels Dry Cleaning stores in Arizona, Connecticut, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, and Michigan will be accepting clothing donations during this time period.

“One of the great things about doing a drive like this every year is that your customers anticipate it and make donating to the drive part of their spring cleaning,” said Kevin Dubois, CEO of Lapels Dry Cleaning. “Last year’s drive was off the charts, generating 13,180 pounds - a new record for us. That’s the equivalent of $13,180 to benefit Big Brother Big Sister. This year, as is our goal every year, we want to exceed the previous year’s total.”

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.

Clothing collected by Lapels Dry Cleaning will be donated to Big Brother Big Sister and in turn will then be sold by high-end thrift stores. The net proceeds from those sales are donated to Big Brother Big Sister mentoring programs for young girls and boys.

“We encourage Lapels customers and the general public to participate in this very worthy effort to raise money for the Big Brother Big Sister organization in your state,” said Dubois. “This drive is one of those efforts where anybody and everybody who takes part wins.”
