Thank You Tide Dry Cleaners for Showing How Much You Care

Picture of team inside Tide Dry CleanersWhen the Principal’s Pantry at West Jordan High School needed someone to dry clean dozens of donated coats and prom dresses so that students could use the gently used clothing, a community partner pitched in to help. Working with the Jordan Education Foundation and Robyn Luke, Tide Dry Cleaners in South Jordan volunteered to take the coats and dresses and dry clean them so the clothing can be offered to any student in need this school year.

We appreciate community partners like Tide Cleaners for caring about education and the students we serve. Thank you. The clean coats and dresses will be put to good use!
