Hangers Cleaners Community Involvement
Hangers Cleaners and KATV Channel 7 are asking you to help keep a kid warm this winter by donating your new or gently used coats to “Coats for Kids.”
Drop off your coats at any of our locations or give them to your delivery driver. Hangers will clean, repair and give the coats to kids in need through the Watershed Project. In the Spirit of Arkansas, gently used and even new coats were given in 2017 — you and other generous donors gave more than 13,000 coats! Well beyond our goal. Giving keeps a child warm, while it warms your heart. We start collecting coats in November each year.
Because Hangers collected so may coats, they offered to give 70 men’s and women’s coats to Stewpot. Thank you, Hangers Cleaners!
On Monday, February 5, Hangers Cleaners made a second delivery of coats to the Stewpot.
Fleet Feet Easy Runner Shoe Store Gives Shoes to the Stewpot
Every two or three months, Fleet Feet Easy Runner located in the Pleasant Ridge Shopping Center on Cantrell gives several boxes of shoes to the Stewpot. Many of the shoes are almost new and many are brought in by customers of Easy Runner. The Stewpot Clothes Closet is always happy to receive the shoes. Ed Brown, Day Manager of Stewpot, and Charlie Frith, Stewpot Board Chairman, are shown below with the shoes. Thanks, Easy Runner!
The Clothes Closet is open from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. each Thursday. Stewpot patrons can receive one each of the following items: toiletries, pants, shirt, socks, shoes, etc. The Clothes Closet is always in need of clean men's and women's clothes. The Fleet Feet Sports Easy Runner shoe store, and the Go! Running shoe store have both been very conscientious in collecting shoes for the Stewpot.
