Grand Rapids, Mich. — Grand Rapids area Curtis Cleaners will collect donated suits at their four locations, dry clean them, and deliver them for veterans to use, state Sen. Dave Hildenbrand announced on Thursday.

This effort, modeled after the “Suits for Soldiers” organization in Southeast Michigan, will help our veterans as they look for employment after returning home from service. Chris Curtis from Curtis Cleaners reached out to Hildenbrand to help spread the word.

“Thank you to Curtis Cleaners for their generosity in supporting our veterans,” said Hildenbrand, R-Lowell. “They are a great family business with a long history of giving back to our community,” Hildenbrand said.
