The donation box for The Daily Mining Gazette’s “We’ve Got You Covered” winter outerwear drive benefitting The Angel Mission store in Calumet is seen this morning filled with coats. Those who wish to donate coats can now drop them off at Crown Cleaners in Houghton, where they will also clean the coats free of charge. Crown Cleaners owner Susan Tomasi said when she saw the ad in The Daily Mining Gazette for the coat drop-off, she knew she wanted to help out. “Sometimes people want to donate coats and they’re not clean. So I thought I could clean them for free,” Tomasi said. “I just want to do something for the community.” Tomasi added that she thinks this is a good cause because of the cold weather received in the Copper Country and because of the economy. Crown Cleaners is located at 305 E. Montezuma Ave. in Houghton. Their hours are 7-6 Monday through Friday and 9-2 on Saturday.
