Palmer Woods Spring Cleaning Clothing Drive
Each year, the Palmer Woods Association assists families who are less fortunate and provides residents an opportunity to clear our homes of gently used clothing. Donations go to The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Detroit Thrift Stores.
Spearheaded by Palmer Woods board member Karoy Brooks, the annual Clothing Drives have been met with enthusiasm. Each year, neighbors find gently used clothing in their closets, basements and attics and leave them at their front door where they are picked up by neighborhood volunteers.
Palmer Woods has sponsored a Clothing Drive for those in need since 2010 with exception of 2015 which our very busy Centennial Year.
For over 125 years the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul has worked to break the cycle of poverty by providing the Greater Detroit Area with an array of goods, services, and shelter, including utility assistance to prevent shut offs. SVdP has also given children, who may be economically challenged or from troubled families in southeastern Michigan, summer camping experiences for over 85 years at Camps Ozanam and Stapleton in Port Huron, Michigan, at no cost to the campers. Camp expenses are covered by the generosity of donors.
