Cover the City
The Cover the City Project was started in 2013 as a way to provide warmth and love to the homeless population in shelters as well as for those who don't use shelters during the coldest months of the year. Each year, Cover the City Project hosts a blanket drive throughout their different chapters to collect new and gently used blankets for those in need, and this year, A Cleaner World and Fox 8 are partnering with this worthwhile mission. Triad A Cleaner World locations will accept blanket donations during the month of October while our friends at Fox 8 will bring awareness to this important need.
To participate, simply drop off a new or gently used blanket at any one of our Triad locations, and click here to learn more about the Cover the City Project.

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 4th Annual 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 May 13, 2019 through June 14, 2019. 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.”
