Mark J. Palumbo Memorial Clothing Drive 2023 (9th) (canva)

In partnership with the Rescue Mission, CenterState CEO is hosting the ninth annual Mark J. Palumbo Memorial Clothing Drive in honor of Nancy Premo. This clothing drive was started by CenterState CEO’s late Vice President of Human Resources Nancy Premo in memory of her son, Mark, who lost his life Jan. 27, 2014 from hypothermia. Each January, she worked with local businesses and partners to collect warm clothing and gear to help prevent others from losing their life due to exposure. With an ongoing need in the community, and the current freezing temperatures, we are calling on our community to join with us as we collect donations of warm clothing, including hats, gloves, socks, boots and coats. Other opportunities to support this initiative through direction donations and online purchases are included below.
