Lapels Dry Cleaning of Boston Seaport may have opened its doors at 415 D Street in South Boston a few months but it has not taken the dry cleaner long to open its heart to the local community. Case in point, Lapels Dry Cleaning of Boston Seaport recently kicked off a coat drive to benefit St. Francis House, a homeless shelter located at 39 Boylston Street in Boston.

“It’s winter in Boston and it’s cold. I can’t even imagine what it’s like to not have a warm place to stay and an adequate coat to wear,” said Scott Goddess, owner of Lapels Dry Cleaning of Boston Seaport. “The St. Francis House does wonderful work in providing a shelter, clothing and other services for the homeless. We’re hoping this drive can provide some warmth to as many of its residents as possible.”

Lapels Dry Cleaning of Boston Seaport will be collecting coats at its Boston Seaport location until January 31. The coats do not have to be cleaned to be donated. Lapels Dry Cleaning of Boston will take care of that.

Coats can be donated during store hours. Lapels Dry Cleaning of Boston Seaport is open Monday through Friday, 7 am to 7 pm; Saturday 8 am to 5 pm; and Sunday, 12pm to 3 pm.

“We take pride in the fact that our franchise owners are not only a part of the business community but make themselves part of the entire community they serve. Each year dozens of Lapels owners participate in clothing drives that generate literally tons of donations from our customers,” said Kevin Dubois, CEO of Lapels Dry Cleaning, which is based in Hanover, MA. “We applaud Scott and his team at Lapels Dry Cleaning of Boston Seaport and their effort on behalf of St. Francis House.”

In addition to providing food, shelter and clothing for the homeless, St. Francis House offers a number of other services. Those include: showers; medical care; legal assistance; mental health and substance abuse counseling; employment services; housing counseling; next step housing program; moving ahead programs; art therapy; pastoral counseling; and referral services.
