At Admiral Cleaners, we believe that we have a responsibility to help improve our community. That’s why our company and staff happily participate in our programs. We are proud to give back to the community that has supported us over the years.
Call for Coats
With the help of our loyal customers, we gather coats every October and November. Our team then cleans these coats and donates them to numerous local charitable organizations. Over the last three decades, we have donated over 100,000 coats.
Would you like to donate your coats?
Call (410) 267-8381 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re interested in helping us continue this worthy tradition, just bring in coats that are lightly worn or new to any of our Admiral Cleaners’ locations. You can also leave your coats in a separately marked bag for your route driver. Together, we can keep this tradition and the people we help thriving.
Helping Local Non-profits
We believe in supporting organizations that support our community. That’s why we continue to donate gift certificates for various non-profit auction events. We jump at the chance to help raise money for good causes.
