CAHP Partners with Lansing Mayor in First Annual Coat Drive
Mayor Andy Schor announced that the City of Lansing will host a coat drive to help provide new and gently used winter coats, hats and gloves to children and adults in need in Lansing. The collection of items will start on Saturday, December 1, and run through the end of the day on Monday, December 10.  
CAHP is excited to partner with the City and offer the Neighborhood Empowerment Center as a drop-off location. The NEC will be open Monday through Friday's from 9:00am - 5:00pm.
The coat drive is a part of the new Serve Lansing Emergency Preparedness initiative. Serve Lansing, launched in September 2018, is a coordinated effort by the City of Lansing and its partners to support volunteers to address community issues.
