Five Star Cleaners announced today that Firstmark Credit Union is now on board to support their annual “COLD DAYS, WARM HEARTS Winter Coat Project,” which will be extended through Friday, February 18.
“We were thrilled when Firstmark Credit Union approached us about joining our winter coat drive,” said Sharlene Thum, vice president and co-founder of Five Star Cleaners.
“We are committed to the Credit Union philosophy of ‘People Helping People,’” said Fred Hagerman, SVP/CMO of Firstmark Credit Union. “When you factor in that we have more than 90,000 members and 10 locations where coats can be dropped off, the 'COLD DAYS, WARM HEARTS Winter Coat Project' sounded like a great opportunity for us to get involved and help make a difference.”
“As a gift for donating,” adds Thum, “each person will receive a receipt for IRS purposes plus a $5 gift certificate good toward any future dry cleaning order courtesy of Five Star Cleaners.”
For the last 30 years Five Star Cleaners has been collecting gently used winter coats and to date more than 30,000 have been donated, cleaned and distributed. Again this year all donations are earmarked for SAMMinistries and Christian Assistance Ministry.
