Dependable Cleaners is proud to announce its support of Cradles to Crayons, a nonprofit organization that equips children from birth through age 12 living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school, and at play, for its winter initiative, according to the company’s announcement.

Now through Dec. 31, 2016 Dependable Cleaners locations will host in-store coat collections to support Cradles to Crayons and its Gear Up for Winter initiative. The program aims to provide families and children with warm winter items necessary for the dropping temperatures and harsh winter season. This year’s program aims to assist 40,000 local children with winter coats, hats, gloves and other winter essentials this season. Dependable Cleaners customers can drop new or gently used coats at collection bins accessible at each location.

“We are delighted to take part in this year’s Gear Up for Winter program,” said Christa Hagearty, president and CEO of Dependable Cleaners. “We hope that our coat collections will service local families during the difficult season ahead.  We are looking forward to building on a relationship with Cradles to Crayons.”

“We are very appreciative of the support from Dependable Cleaners,” said Lynn Margherio, Founder and CEO of Cradles to Crayons. “We are working to keep 40,000 children safe and warm this winter and Dependable Cleaners’ collection efforts in all sixteen of their stores will go a long way toward helping to make that happen.”

Participating Dependable Cleaners stores include:

152 Galen Street, Watertown
