Salvation Army Benefits From Michigan Coach’s Departure
At 9:51 am on January 14, 2011
What's an ex-coach to do with all of the athletic apparel he's been given after he's fired from his job?
Donate it to charity, of course.
Former University of Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez has donated 432 Wolverines items to the local Salvation Army. The items will be sold or auctioned off Saturday at the Salvation Army's thrift store in Wayne, Michigan.
Maj. John Aren of the Salvation Army told the Detroit Free Press that the Wayne area had "been suffering a lot of pain recently" and the fact that the items ended up at that store "might just be a God thing."
