Giving Tuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. At Faultless Healthcare Linen, we made no exception and took part in this year’s Giving Tuesday by joining forces with United Way of Greater Kansas City and Faultless Starch in the second-ever Loads of Love campaign.
The goal of the #LoadsofLoveKC 2017 campaign was to raise funds in hopes of adding washer/dryer facilities to five Kansas City Public Schools.
“After 121 years of people mixing up Faultless Healthcare Linen with Faultless Starch, our two companies worked together for United Way and confused people for a good cause!” said Susan Witcher, president and CEO of Faultless Linen. “#LoadsofLoveKC’s initiative to serve Kansas City Public School students who might find themselves with a need for clean clothes touched our heart. Laundry is what we do. This was a perfect cause to work with our friends at Faultless Starch and support United Way and our public school students.”
We know first-hand the impact clean laundry can have! Did you know…?
Every day, children miss school because they don’t have access to clean school uniforms.
On-site washer/dryer facilities lead to improved attendance, provides tools for classrooms that teach life skills and help involve parents in the school setting.
Faultless Starch and Faultless Healthcare Linen contributed 50 cents for every dollar raised up to $5,000, each contributing $2,500 to the campaign. With the help of all monetary donations, The United Way of Greater Kansas City exceeded its goal of $15,000 and raised more than $21,300, allowing for the purchase of two additional washer/dryer sets. We are very excited to have participated in the purchase and donation of washers and dryers to seven schools in the Kansas City area!
