At each of its five Southern California locations, Flair Cleaners is bringing back its annual Holiday Clothing and Shoe Drive from Nov. 29 to Dec. 31.
A large donation box will be placed in the lobby of the company’s Santa Monica branch, 720 Montana Ave., for gently used items that will be given to Helping Hands for the Blind, St. Vincent de Paul’s Thrift Store and the National Council of Jewish Women Thrift Shop.
“We are proud to continue this important tradition,” owner Gary Futterman said via a release. “Since we started the Holiday Clothing and Shoe Drive 11 years ago, our customers have really gotten into the spirit of giving, and each year more and more clothing is donated.”
Items in greatest need are jeans and other denim items, shoes and professional clothing. Flair Cleaners also encourages the donation of accessories like gloves, purses, hats, scarves and belts.
