There are a whopping 30.2 million small businesses in the United States, which makes up 99.9 percent of all companies combined. They each have a wide range of specialties from baked goods, animal rescue, electronics, and more. One of the nice things about small businesses is that customers are able to feel more connected to the product or service.
For years these companies have been finding new and unique ways to give back to their communities. Through their business, they’re able to spread kindness and raise awareness for those in need. Other businesses should take note of what these people are doing.
Anton’s Cleaners Keeps Kids Warm
One of New England’s most popular dry cleaners has been helping kids warm for almost two decades. Every year Anton’s Cleaners in Lowell, Massachusetts organizes a coat drive called Coats for Kids. Their main goal is to gather as many coasts as they can to provide the gift of warmth to children in need.
Anton’s Cleaners posts flyers around the area and promotes their drive on social media to get as many donations as possible. It’s very fitting that a dry cleaner would do something charitable with clothes.
