Flair Cleaners will host its fourth annual Flair Cares Food Drive – Hang Up Hunger – February 11 to 28. The drive benefits local food pantries that are facing higher demand due to recent fires and the government shutdown. Flair will match contributions up to 1,000 pounds of food donated by customers at each location. And, in appreciation, every customer who donates will receive a coupon for 50% off dry cleaning.
“2019 has been a challenging year for our local communities and food banks. So, many of our neighbors are facing challenges they never expected, and they need our help,” said Gary Futterman, owner of Flair Cleaners. “As a family-owned business, we know how important it is to help our neighbors. Therefore, we are committed to doing all we can to make a difference.”
Flair customers and community members may bring unopened, non-perishable commercially prepared, canned or boxed food to any Flair Cleaners location. We do not accept food items that have passed their expiration dates or items in glass jars. For a complete list of recommended food items, visit Flair Cleaners’ Facebook page.
