This Holiday Season we are teaming up with the Stockbridge Avenue United Methodist Church and Kalamazoos Loaves and Fishes to help those in our community struggling during this economic hardship. We will be collecting donations of canned food items, warm coats, hats, mittens/gloves, scarves, toys, and blankets. We have drop boxes in our showroom and service drive if you’d like to contribute, any donations are greatly appreciated.
