How would you like to get a break on your dry cleaning bill, and help stock the shelves at a local food pantry at the same time?
Sunbury Cleaners, 23 W. Granville St., is hosting its annual summer food drive to help stock the shelves at the Big Walnut Friends Who Share food pantry.
For each can or non-perishable box of food you drop off at Sunbury Cleaners, you will receive $1 off of your dry cleaning bill, up to $10 per order, through September. No out-of-date food items will qualify for the discount.
Friends Who Share needs food pantry help in the summer months, said Sunbury Cleaners manager Jane Milburn. Closer to the holidays – Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter – individuals and groups hold food and fundraising drives for the food pantry; but near the end of summer with a new school year approaching, Milburn said budgets are stretched thin and the shelves at Friends Who Share look a little bare.
“Everybody has needed help at some time or other in their life,” Milburn said. “This is just one more way Sunbury Cleaners can join with our customers to give something back to the community.”
