Since the program began in 1994, Anton's Cleaners has collected, cleaned free of charge and distributed over 562,000 gently worn winter coats to men, women and children who would otherwise be without one. The program receives invaluable support from collection, promotional, supporting and distribution partners as well as individuals.
Donate for Drew & Bone Marrow Drive with Be A Match
Quarter 3 - June 2009
Core Medical Group has chosen to help a local family with their fight against Aplastic Anemia. Drew is a 10 year old boy who was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia in June of this year. Drew is an energetic ten year old. His happy personality and smile always brings joy to his family and friends. Like many boys his age he enjoys video games, cartoons, soccer, and playing with his friends and his two older brothers.
As you can only imagine his life was turned upside down. However, despite the shock of his sudden illness, numerous needles and IV's, and constant hospitalization, Drew has kept his attitude positive, his spirits high, and has met all his challenges with his infectious smile. He is a fighter, and his courage serves as the inspiration that helps guide his family toward a cure.
MSPCA: Nevins Farm, Methuen, MA
Quarter 2 - May 2009
Some Americans are struggling to feed themselves and their human family members; it's easy for pets to fall by the wayside. US animal shelters are reporting record numbers of surrendered pets, and people nationwide are finding it increasingly difficult to put food on the table and in the dog bowl.
The MSPCA-Angell is a national and international leader in animal protection and veterinary medicine and provides direct hands-on care for thousands of animals each year. Founded in 1868, we are the second-oldest humane society in the United States. Their services include animal protection and adoption, advocacy, humane education, law enforcement and world-class veterinary care. The MSPCA-Angell is a private, non-profit organization. They do not receive any government funding nor are they funded or operated by any national humane organization. The MSPCA-Angell relies solely on the support and contributions of individuals who care about animals.
