Lapels collects 600 lbs. of clothes

Posted 10/5/12

LINCOLN – The Lincoln location of Lapels Dry Cleaning, an environmentally friendly dry cleaning company headquartered in Hanover, Mass., collected the largest amount of clothing – 600 pounds – of all participating locations during the company’s recent clothing drive to benefit Big Brother and Big Sister of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

“Rhode Island may be the smallest state in the union, but this clothing drive shows how Lapels customers care about helping out fellow Ocean Staters,” said Laura LoBreglio, customer service manager, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ocean State, in a statement.

The Lincoln store and 18 Massachusetts stores collectively donated 4,073 pounds of clothing gathered last May.

“Lapels prides itself on being environmentally friendly. A part of that is giving back to the communities we serve. We’re grateful to have a customer base that shares that spirit of giving,” said Kevin Dubois, CEO of Lapels Dry Cleaning, in a statement.
