We hope that this donation will make a positive impact in the lives of our community members who are in need.

Lake Michigan Mailers announced today that it has donated forty gently used winter coats previously worn by their route service drivers to the Center for the Homeless in South Bend, Indiana. In addition, the company provided the Center for the Homeless (CFH) with forty-six, new knit winter hats. Prior to making the donation, the coats were professionally cleaned by The Clothes Basket in Paw Paw, Michigan and then sent along with the new hats to Alfie Logo Gear in Traverse City, Michigan to be de-branded.

“Despite the relatively mild winter our region has enjoyed thus far, we all know that severe cold weather is on the way and the need for clean, new and gently used winter clothing is at its highest during the first 3 months of the year,” said David C. Rhoa, president of Lake Michigan Mailers, Inc. “We hope that this donation will make a positive impact in the lives of our community members who are in need. We are deeply appreciative of our friends at The Clothes Basket and Alfie Logo Gear for their efforts in helping us prepare the coats and hats for donation,” Rhoa concluded.
