HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — OXXO Care Cleaners, a Florida-based drycleaning franchise, is hosting a school supply drive, which it plans to make an annual event. The drive hopes to collect more than 1,000 supplies for children in Broward County, Florida and distribute them by Aug. 6, just before the school year gets underway.
The school drive is the latest program OXXO Care Cleaners has launched. Past efforts have included clothing donations, fundraisers for different organizations and donating their time to causes such as Rebuilding Broward, Feeding South Florida, Beach Sweeps and walking alongside warriors to raise awareness for breast cancer, mental health, and battered women.
“Guided by our caring philosophy, the goal is to serve as many families as possible,” says Nilma Fernandez, managing director of OXXO Care Cleaners. “Our main goal and slogan of the campaign is that we want to help our Broward County Children be prepared to succeed in the classroom, and furthermore, achieve all their dreams.”
“We want to make sure the children in our community have the resources they need to start the 2022-2023 school year in great shape, and we just want to give back to our community who has been so kind to us throughout all these years” says Salomon Mishaan, president of OXXO Care Cleaners.
Customers and employees will be able to donate in-kind items such as backpacks, pencils, erasers, highlighters, pencil pouches, notebooks, folders, crayons, etc. Cash contributions are also welcomed. This Back-to-School Drive will run through July 31, 2022.
