Flair Cleaners: Make Room for all your #BlackFriday bargains

Donate gently used or new clothing and shoes to the Flair Cleaners Annual Holiday Clothing and Shoe Drive


December 27, 2016

11/15/16: Flair Cleaners wants to help you clean out your closet and feel good about it. Make room for all your #BlackFriday bargains by donating gently used or new clothing and shoes to the Flair Cleaners Annual Holiday Clothing and Shoe Drive. Clothing and shoes can be donated at any of the five Flair Cleaners locations, Burbank, Redondo Beach, Santa Monica, Studio City, and Valencia, between November 25 and December 31, 2016.

All donations will be cleaned, if needed, and given to local nonprofits that help our community members in need. This year the drive will benefit the Los Angeles Mission, MEND, and Helping Hands for the Blind.

"We all have something lying around, like the stack of shirts your son has outgrown or those items of clothing in your closet that you just never wear. Now is the time to get them out of the closet and into the hands of those who need them most," said Gary Futterman, owner, Flair Cleaners. "We are proud to carry on this tradition and to help our communities come together to help others, and grateful for the ongoing generosity of our customers and communities."

Please donate only new or gently used items in good condition and remember to empty all pockets before making your donation. Clothing and shoes can be placed in the large donation bins near the entrance at each Flair Cleaners store. While all types of clothing are needed, jeans, professional clothing and accessories are appreciated. A list of items most needed by these nonprofits can be found on our Facebook page.
