Filmmakers Work with Mr. Mac to Donate Suits to Third World Countries
Salt Lake City, UT – January 27, 2006 – HaleStorm Entertainment and New Harmony Pictures, filmmakers for Suits on the Loose, together with Mr. Mac, a well-established, state-wide suits and apparel company, announced they are collecting suits, hats, shirts, ties, slacks, socks and shoes for missionaries in third world countries. Collections can be made through February 24th at all Mr. Mac locations throughout Utah.
Members of the community can donate to the suit drive at their nearest Mr. Mac location. Mr. Mac has locations in ZCMI center, Redwood Road, Fort Union, Bountiful, Layton, Ogden, Logan and Orem.
“We’ve received reports that missionaries in third-world countries are in desperate need of clothing,” said Rodney Henson, writer, director and producer of Suits on the Loose. “We love providing entertainment, but we also look for ways to give back to the community. Hopefully this suit-drive will make it easy and enjoyable for Utahans to donate to a great cause.”
Mr. Mac is donating a shopping spree to encourage community members to donate to the suit drive. “Anyone who comes in to Mr. Mac from January 26th to February 24th can register for a $2,000 Mr. Mac shopping spree,” said Stuart Christiansen, marketing executive for Mr. Mac.
“Mr. Mac has been fantastic to work with,” said Dave Hunter, president of HaleStorm Entertainment and CEO of HaleStorm’s corporate owner Stone Five Studios. “They’ve done so much for missionaries over the past 42 years and we’re honored to have their involvement.”
Suits on the Loose filmmakers also stated they are giving away a Suits on the Loose soundtrack, featuring original recordings from world-renowned artists like The Alarm, Gene Loves Jezebel and Tamar Berk and local artists including Alex Boye and Tiffany Fronk, to everyone who donates a suit.
“We’re really excited about this promotion,” said Hunter. “We live in a very service-oriented state and I think we’ll get a great response from both fans and non-fans of our movies because it’s just a great cause.”
