Pay a Dollar, Dress a Child: Helping Struggling Families with Small Donations

Dade County area dry cleaner Dryclean USA donates time and money to help clothe children in need.

Miami, FL (PRWEB) Dec. 16, 2009 -- South Florida dry cleaner Dryclean USA Florida, along with Atlantic Awnings of Miami, has collaborated with the charity Prints of Hope to help clothe children in need by collecting funds on behalf of indigent and needy families. Dryclean USA Florida will begin distributing cards, with delivery of their clean clothes, and pamphlets requesting donations from $1 to $100 which will aid children in need of clothing.

"This is a holiday imperative for local businesses," said Cristina Suarez-Peruyera, communications director for Dryclean USA FL. "There is nothing better we can do for our local community than assist them in taking care of our future - the youth."

Prints of Hope, also known as Dejando Huellas, is a faith-based, non-profit organization that provides humanitarian aid to underprivileged communities throughout the world. The organization was founded to tackle hunger, poverty, and the lack of medical attention for children and the families of the underprivileged. Through their humanitarian projects, Prints of Hope takes hope to places of struggle by taking advantage of the Dress a Child program to clothe thousands of children per trip and to visit a medical team which sees hundreds per day.

Interested participants can donate $1 to help dress a child in the Miami area; $5 to cover shipping for one bag; $20 to give a child a new outfit with shoes; $50 to give new outfits, shoes, and hygiene products for 2 children; or $100 to donate to 4 children outfits, shoes, and hygiene products.

"Dryclean USA Florida is very proud of our association with Prints of Hope," said Suarez-Peruyera. "As a member of the Metro-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach communities, we feel obligated to assist our local families in donating the most basic of the bare necessities. We encourage our customers to help us and the South Florida area as well, and we hope that Prints of Hope begins a trend of charity and philanthropy that spreads to all."
