Flair Cleaners 10th annual holiday clothing drive begins now through December 31. Anyone with clothing they would like to donate is encouraged to stop by. A large, festive donation box will be in the lobby.
“Everyone is very enthusiastic about this program,” said owner Gary Futterman. “Since we started the clothing drive 10 years ago, our customers have really gotten into the spirit of giving, and each year more and more clothing is brought in. Everyone is welcome to drop off items to share—the more the merrier.”
The Flair team members empty the boxes as they fill up into additional containers at each location, and the clothes are collected regularly throughout the entire program. A tally is kept by each manager, as all Flair staffers are keeping score, hoping to exceed previous years’ gifts of over 6,000 garments. Flair associates will provide receipts for those who would like to receive a tax deduction for their items.
Charities benefitting from the collection this year include the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) Thrift Shop (http://www.ncjwbcs.org/thrift.php), the Disabled American Veterans (http://www.dav.org/), St. Vincent de Paul’s Thrift Store (http://svdpla.org/index.php/thriftstores/contents/thrift_stores), and Helping Hands for the Blind.
