It’s time to clean out closets for charity and support the Flair Cleaners 21st Annual Holiday Clothing and Shoe Drive from Nov. 24 through Dec. 31, 2023.
Customers and community members can donate at any of Flair Cleaners four locations, including Valencia. Pickup and Delivery customers may leave a clearly marked bag out with their orders. Donations will be given to the National Council of Jewish Women, the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission and The Salvation Army Santa Monica.
“The numbers are staggering: 58,936 people in Los Angeles County are experiencing homelessness and six out of 10 of these are without housing for the first time. Without homes, many of these individuals lack basic needs including clothing and shoes,” said Gary Futterman, owner of Flair Cleaners. “This annual event makes it easy for our customers to not only clear their closets of unused items but helps our communities and neighbors in need.”
Items needed most:
Clothing in men’s, women’s, and children’s sizes
Extra-large and tall sizes are needed (XL, XXL, XXXL shirts)
New socks and undergarments (used items will not be accepted)
Sun hats and ball caps
Shoes in men’s, women’s, and children’s sizes
Coats, beanies, and gloves
Pajamas, tops and bottoms
Before donating, consider the dignity of the person receiving your donation.
Never give something you wouldn’t be willing to wear.
Be sure that all used clothing is clean, of good quality, and ready to wear (no repairs needed).
Remember to empty all pockets before donating.
