Community Baby Shower
While the economy has been improving, we know of many families that are still struggling just to get by. Then add the needs of a newborn to the mix and many times families have to choose between buying diapers or paying the electric bill; that’s why A Cleaner World is once again teaming up with FOX8 to host the FOX8 Community Baby Shower, a program designed to provide baby essentials to struggling families.
To participate in the Community Baby Shower simply drop off new things like diapers, wipes, formula, and supplies or gently used things like baby clothes, toys, and cribs at any Triad area A Cleaner World location or at one of four Colfax Furniture locations April 17, 2017 through May 12, 2017. Family Service of the Piedmont and Family Services of Forsyth County will collect and distribute the donated items to new mothers and babies in need throughout our community.
“We believe in the importance of family,” said Chris Edwards, President of A Cleaner World, “and adding a baby to a family should equal joy and happiness, not stress and worry. We want new parents to be able to focus on that joy and merely loving on their new baby. The simple act of donating a package of diapers or some clothing your child has outgrown can make such a difference.”

The 2018 Give A Kid A Coat Campaign
Give A Kid A Coat, a program that solicits coat donations from area residents to give to those in need, will kick off its 31st campaign on Friday, January 5, 2018, with a live event being held at the A Cleaner World located at 2527 Eastchester Drive in High Point from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Please drop off a coat that morning, and then stay for the food, frenzy, and fun.
If you cannot make the kick off event, don't worry. You can drop off outgrown or no longer needed coats at any A Cleaner World location starting January 5, 2018, through February 10, 2018. A Cleaner World will make minor repairs, clean the coats, and then send them to The Salvation Army for distribution. See below for distribution dates and information.
Give A Kid A Coat is sponsored by A Cleaner World, FOX8, 1075KZL, WKRR Rock92, and The Salvation Army. For more information about Give A Kid A Coat, please call Chris Edwards at 336-841-4188.
