“Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on how much we all have and appreciate the gifts we have been given,” said Steve Achatz, owner of Achatz Catering and Soup. “We are participating in the Lions Coat Drive this year in this spirit of giving and encourage everyone to join with us to help keep our neighbors warm.”
All coats collected will be delivered by Achatz representatives to the Detroit Lions’ 72nd Thanksgiving Day game in a 32-foot Lions Fan Bus.
This year’s Lions Coat Drive is sponsored by Pepsi in association with The Salvation Army, WXYZ-Channel 7 and 97.1 The Ticket.
