Betty Brigade partners with Ann Arbor businesses to drive Salvation Army donations

By Staff

Betty Brigade of Ann Arbor is partnering with Briarwood Mall and the Salvation Army to support members of the Ann Arbor area community who are in need during the holidays.

Betty Brigade, a full service personal assistance/concierge business, will facilitate a volunteer-run coat and bag check at Briarwood Mall during the holiday shopping season, with all donations going to support the Salvation Army.

From Thanksgiving through Christmas, the Betty Brigade will also serve as a collection point for toys and clothing donated as part of the Salvation Army's Angel Tree program in Briarwood Mall's Relaxation Station outside Von Maur’s.

In addition to the Angel Tree and coat check services, this area also will feature musical performances, gift wrap services and free samples from The Melting Pot and other local businesses. The coat check will be open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
