Thanks to everyone who hosted a collection bin this year!!  We had an overwhelming response from members wanting to participate with a total of 30 buildings including Flint and Grand Rapids.  The APA coat drive not only benefits MSU CAMP students, but also the Greater Lansing Area Public Schools through LSEA .  

 

We’re happy to report APA collected a total of 241 coats, 11 pairs of boots, 54 scarves, 71 pairs of gloves and 96 hats!  In addition, we had two large bags of miscellaneous coats, clothing and other apparel for local Haven House.

 

A special shout out to Dennis Seybert, Jeremy Romel, Martin McDonough and Sue Brandt who helped with sorting for a couple hours after work!  Dennis & Martin also assisted me in pick up of all the bins last week!  

 

I’m proud to be a part of MSU APA knowing we made a difference for our community.
