An October Orange Initiative

Our‌ ‌Donation‌ ‌Drive‌ ‌initiative‌ ‌is‌ ‌aimed‌ ‌at‌ ‌soliciting‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌gifting‌ ‌of‌ ‌new‌ ‌&‌ ‌old,‌ ‌unused‌ ‌clothes,‌ ‌shoes,‌ ‌toys‌ ‌and‌ ‌books‌ ‌for‌ ‌redistribution‌ ‌to‌ ‌children‌ ‌and‌ ‌adults‌ ‌in‌ ‌impoverished‌ ‌communities.‌ ‌Whenever‌ ‌we‌ ‌receive‌ ‌used‌ ‌clothes,‌ ‌we‌ ‌would‌ ‌have‌ ‌them‌ ‌sent‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌dry‌ ‌cleaners‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌items‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌properly‌ ‌laundered‌ ‌and‌ ‌neatly‌ ‌packed,‌ ‌so‌ ‌that‌ ‌when‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌redistributing‌ ‌there‌ ‌is‌ ‌the‌ ‌sense‌ ‌of‌ ‌getting‌ ‌gifts‌ ‌like‌ ‌brand‌ ‌new.‌ ‌We‌ ‌thought‌ ‌it‌ ‌was‌ ‌essential‌ ‌to‌ ‌go‌ ‌the‌ ‌extra‌ ‌mile‌ ‌in‌ ‌laundering‌ ‌donated‌ ‌clothes‌ ‌as‌ ‌a‌ ‌way‌ ‌of‌ ‌building‌ ‌on‌ ‌our‌ ‌brand‌ ‌ideals.‌

We‌ ‌started‌ ‌our‌ ‌first‌ ‌Donation‌ ‌Drive‌ ‌in‌ ‌March‌ ‌of‌ ‌2019‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌reception‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌idea‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌donation‌ ‌of‌ ‌these‌ ‌items‌ ‌has‌ ‌been‌ ‌really‌ ‌heartwarming,‌ ‌as‌ ‌people‌ ‌have‌ ‌been‌ ‌constantly‌ ‌reaching‌ ‌out.‌ In‌ ‌this‌ ‌regard,‌ ‌we‌ ‌partnered‌ ‌with‌ ‌Washcraft‌ ‌Drycleaning‌ ‌Services,‌ ‌who‌ ‌have‌ ‌supported‌ ‌our‌ ‌initiative‌ ‌by‌ ‌drycleaning‌ ‌all‌ ‌clothing‌ ‌items‌ ‌donated‌ ‌for‌ ‌free.‌ ‌This‌ ‌gesture‌ ‌is‌ ‌their‌ ‌contribution‌ ‌to‌ ‌this‌ ‌initiative‌ ‌and‌ ‌overall‌ ‌support‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌October‌ ‌Orange‌ ‌Initiative,‌ ‌for‌ ‌which‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌truly‌ ‌grateful.‌

This‌ ‌initiative‌ ‌is‌ ‌ongoing‌ ‌and‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌always‌ ‌willing‌ ‌to‌ ‌receive‌ ‌your‌ ‌gifts‌ ‌in‌ ‌supporting‌ ‌children‌ ‌and‌ ‌families.‌

The‌ ‌projects‌ ‌we‌ ‌have‌ ‌undertaken‌ ‌with‌ ‌this‌ ‌initiative‌ ‌have‌ ‌been‌ ‌documented‌ ‌on‌ ‌our‌ ‌blog,‌ ‌the‌ ‌links‌ ‌below‌ ‌are‌ ‌to‌ ‌related‌ ‌posts‌ ‌on‌ ‌our‌ ‌Donation‌ ‌Drive‌ ‌efforts.‌
