Antolin Coats for Kids
Antolin Shelby and local community leaders are looking to ensure local kids are warmed by more than holiday cheer this winter.
The township’s largest employer, Antolin Shelby, has partnered with Utica Community Schools, Shelby Township and the cities of Sterling Heights and Utica to ensure families in need in Michigan’s second largest school district have new coats, hats and gloves this winter.
Housed in a new, state-of-the-art 368,000-square-foot automotive interiors manufacturing facility at 52888 Shelby Parkway, Antolin Shelby wanted to find a way to show its support for the community this holiday season.
Members of the community can join the staff at Antolin Shelby in the drive as they are invited to donate new coats, hats and gloves for students in grades kindergarten through sixth. Coats will be collected at Antolin Shelby, Shelby Township Hall at 52700 Van Dyke Ave., the Shelby Township Library at 51680 Van Dyke Ave. and at the Shelby Township Police Department at 52530 Van Dyke Ave. until Jan. 4.
There will also be collection locations in Sterling Heights at the Richard J. Notte City Center at 40555 Utica Road, the Sterling Heights Public Library at 40255 Dodge Park Road, Sterling Heights Parks and Recreation at 8655 Irving Road Sterling Heights Department of Public Works at 7200 18 Mile Road, Sterling Heights Fire Station No. 5 at 41625 Ryan Road and the Sterling Heights Police Department at 40333 Dodge Park Road.
Utica will have a collection center at the Utica Police Department/City Hall at 7550 Auburn Road and at Dave & Buster's at 45511 Park Ave. Donations made at Dave & Buster's will be rewarded with a card for free all-day gaming.
All drop-off locations will be open during normal business hours. Police collection centers will be open 24/7. After Jan. 4, Antolin Shelby will collect the coats and deliver them to Utica Community Schools where school officials will distribute them to students in need at the district’s 25 elementary schools.
