Braman Termite and Pest Elimination Teams up with Best Cleaners to Collect Coats for Kids in CT

Braman Termite and Pest Elimination, a leading provider of pest management services in southern New England since 1890, today announced that they will be teaming up with Best Cleaners and Coats for Connecticut to collect winter coats for children in need through Jan. 2, 2016.

Best Cleaners has sponsored a “Coats for Connecticut” campaign for the past six years. During that time thousands of coats have been collected and donated to children and families in need. Best Cleaners cleans all of the coats for free and the Salvation Army distributes them.

This year Braman Termite and Pest Elimination is getting involved to help collect winter coats. As colder temperatures approach there are many families throughout Connecticut that struggle to provide their children with warm clothing. Braman is asking customers to donate winter coats that have been outgrown or simply not worn. Adult sized coats are also being collected.

“‘The Coats for Connecticut’ campaign is a vital program because there are so many young people in our community that go without during the winter months,” said Jerry Lazarus, third generation owner of Braman Termite and Pest Elimination. “Supporting community initiatives is very important to all of us here at Braman”.

Braman is asking their customers to simply give their gently used winter coats to service professionals while they make their regularly scheduled service appointments. They will also be collecting coats at their Auburn, Mass. location through the new year and have recently completed a “Coats for Kids” drive in western Mass. where they were able to collect more than 50 coats.

“We are simply asking our customers and employees to donate winter coats that have been outgrown or simply not worn,” said Lazarus. “The more local businesses participate, the better the campaign will go, and the more coats will be collected for people in need. The best part is that we are continuing the campaign through Jan 2, 2016.”
