Community Baby Shower
Adding a new baby to a family is both a joyous and stressful occasion. We know some of our neighbors struggle to get by, and 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 5th 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 8, 2021 through June 11, 2021. The Salvation Army will collect and distribute the donated items throughout our community. Also, online giving can be made securely to the Salvation Army and essential items will be purchased and distributed to new mothers and babies in need.
“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.”

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. Forsyth and Guilford County A Cleaner World locations will accept blanket donations October 1, 2021 through November 30, 2021 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.
2022 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 celebrate our 35th year in 2022 and will begin Friday January 7 thru Saturday February 12, 2022.
Residents that wish to participate in the 2022 Give A Kid A Coat Campaign simply need to check their closets for an outgrown coat or a coat they no longer wear and drop it off at any A Cleaner World location.
January 7, 2022 through February 12, 2022. A Cleaner World will clean, press, and perform minor repairs on the coats before they are given to The Salvation Army for distribution.
More details to follow as we get closer to the campaign.
If a child needs a coat during times we are not actively distributing coats, their parent of guardian can take them to any Salvation Army Family Store and let the staff know that the child needs a coat.
