Lapels Dry Cleaning stores in Arizona, Connecticut, Louisi- ana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, and Michigan will be accepting clothing donations during this time period.

"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 ben- efit 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, wom- en's and children's clothing, coats, jackets, shoes (any sea- son or size). Household items such as linens, sheets, blan- kets, towels, drapes, comfort- ers, 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 cus- tomers 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."
