“Nearly 30 percent of low-income individuals in Los Angeles County struggle with food insecurity. As a result, they don’t know when they’ll get their next meal,” said Gary Futterman, owner of Flair Cleaners. “We believe that no one should go hungry, which is why we are committed to collect as much food as possible. And, we will match donations up to 1,000 pounds per location, during our 5th Annual Flair Cares Food Drive.”
What To Donate
Flair customers and community members may bring unopened, non-perishable commercially prepared, canned or boxed food to any Flair Cleaners – Redondo Beach, Santa Monica, Studio City, or Valencia.

Flair will deliver donations to the following charities:
- Westside Food Bank is an independent nonprofit corporation that provides food, which enables low-income people to stay in their homes, deterring the problem of homelessness, and saving them from making the agonizing choice between paying for rent or food when they can’t afford both.
- Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry strives to alleviate hunger throughout the Santa Clarita Valley. Their dynamic group of volunteers sources donations, packages nutritious food, and distributes it to qualifying residents.
- Established in 1983, the North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry is a 100% volunteer coalition of diverse religious institutions working together to address the problem of hunger in the community.
