On Tuesday, December 14, 2020, representatives from Magellan came to James E. Dottke Project-Based Learning High School to make a donation to their Community Closet.

According to Goelz, “We’ve had our current Community Closet at Dottke since we moved into our new location in 2017-18. However, it was started years ago and is currently maintained by our Educational Assistant, Meg Holzhauer. It all started to help fill a need at our school. Still, we couldn’t do it without generous donations.  Magellan has been an amazing partner!”

“The room is set up to serve our male and female students,” explains Goelz. “The section for girls is stocked with shirts, sweatshirts, jeans, dress pants, dresses, scarfs, blouses, etc. and the male section has pants, t-shirts, sweatshirts, and dress shirts. There are also winter coats, hats, gloves, shoes and boots. We even provide hygiene packs with soap, shampoo and deodorant. For those that are in need of food, we provide non-perishable food items that we fill backpacks with and send home with students.   

Magellan provided us with lots of great supplies for our families,” explains Goelz. “From water bottles, backpacks, to lots of clothing in every size, We were truly moved by their generosity and thoughtfulness.”

“At Magellan Promotions, our mission is to build community through promotional products, and one of the important ways we do that is by giving back to our local community. As a company based in West Allis, that works with clients in education, our team was excited to partner with the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District to provide apparel for the Community Closets. We’re truly grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with them to deliver clothing items generously donated by Magellan Promotions and our production partners.” said Magellan executive, Steve Baker.
