By: City of Michigan City Last Updated: October 22, 2019

The City of Michigan City would like to announce that the annual coat drive is now underway.  Citizens can drop off new, and or, gently worn coats and snowsuits at Concord Cleaners.  Concord Cleaners will clean and then deliver the coats and snowsuits to the Michigan Township Trustees Office where they will be available, to those in need, beginning immediately.  The coat drive will continue throughout the winter season.   

“There is a large need for this yearly campaign in our community; I would like to thank our citizens for their generosity and also Michigan Township Trustee Rodney Washington and his office for their willingness to get involved and their help in addressing the needs of our residents,” said Mayor Ron Meer. 

“I would also like to personally thank Concord Cleaners for their generous offer to clean, at no cost, any coats and snowsuits that you wish to donate to the coat drive,” said Mayor Meer.  “Simply drop off your coats at Concord Cleaners (3231 Franklin St.) and say they are for the coat campaign, and Concord Cleaners will clean them and deliver them to the Michigan Township Trustees Office weekly.”

This is the eighth year in a row the City of Michigan City has partnered with Michigan Township Trustee Rodney Washington and his office to move the distribution of coats from City Hall to the Michigan Township Trustees Office located at 2601 East Michigan Boulevard. The hours of operation are 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  You can also reach the trustee's office at 219-874-5201.
