2007 - Buckweed fire chars 38,000 acres, destroys 21 homes in Canyon Country and Agua Dulce [story]


flair Beginning Nov. 27, Flair Cleaners Valencia will be accepting donations of gently used or new clothing and shoes as part of its 13th Annual Holiday Clothing and Shoe Drive.

The drive, which runs through Dec. 31, will benefit the Los Angeles Mission, MEND, and Helping Hands for the Blind.

“Since we started this tradition 13 years ago, our customers have helped us collect and donate tens of thousands of pounds of clothing and shoes,” said Gary Futterman, owner of Flair Cleaners. “With El Niño coming, donations of raincoats, gloves, scarves, and boots are especially needed. With your help, we can help those in our communities who are most in need, be prepared.”

Clothing and shoes can be left in the large donation bins in the lobby of Flair located at 27011 McBean Parkway, Valencia, CA 91355 and you can also call (661) 753-9900.

While all types of clothing will be accepted, shoes, jeans and other denim products, professional clothes, and accessories such as gloves, scarves, hats, belts and purses, are needed.

Clothing and shoes may be gently used but must be in good condition, wearable and not ready to be discarded. Remember to empty all pockets before donating.

Clothing will be cleaned, if needed, and then distributed. To learn more about the charities we are supporting this year, visit Flair’s Facebook page. Tax receipts will be available on request.

Tips on Selecting Clothes to Donate:
1.Dedicate time to go through every item in your wardrobe.
2.Sort through your shoes first, next do accessories, tackle hanging clothes third, and finally, sort through drawers.
3.When going through clothflaires and shoes, consider what might be better used by others in need.
4.Ask yourself, “Does this fit? Have I worn this in the last 12 months? Is it likely I will ever wear this again? Is this currently in style, and/or does it represent my style? If I was shopping right now, would I buy this?”
5.Once you decide to donate a garment, be sure to check the pockets and remove any personal items.
