Being Social responsible is a real thing at City Apparel. City Apparel is currently going through the certification process of becoming a Benefit Corporation to provide transparency and accountability that aligns with being a better steward to our associates, clients and community.
We are all about diversity and inclusion and there are three areas that we would bleed for. Kids. Cancer. Veterans.
City feels strongly about investing and participating in community events and programs, especially those in communities where our associates and customers live, work and play. Among other initiatives, we routinely hold and support charitable events within our facilities and provide our associates a charitable match program and 40 hours of paid time to support their own community service.
Organizations that have a special place in our heart:
Coats for Christmas
Coats for Christmas of Hancock County originated from the vision of City Dry Cleaning owner, Paul Kramer. In 1987, Kramer developed and launched a service project to provide a warm coat to those in need regardless of financial circumstances.
The Braden Kramer Foundation
The Braden Kramer Foundation was established to honor Braden’s fight against Cancer by raising funds that will positively impact families battling Pediatric Cancer.
The mission of the United Way of Hancock County is to “measurably improve people’s lives.”
Honor Flight Network
The mission of the Honor Flight is to transport America's Veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.
Findlay High School Athletics
The mission of Findlay High School Athletics is Educating and Empowering for life both on and off the field of play. Within FHS Athletics, Findlay Trojan Club raises money to fill the gap between what the school system is able to provide and what their student athletes and coaches need to compete successfully in their conference.
Black Swamp Classic
Black Swamp Classic promises to be a great day of golf, friendship and fun. All proceeds will be donated to the Braden Kramer Foundation, Findlay and Putnam County YMCA.
Susan G. Komen
Komen, is the largest and best-funded breast cancer organization in the United States. The organization has spent nearly $1.5 billion for breast cancer education, research, advocacy, health services and social support programs in the U.S., and through partnerships in more than 50 countries.
Although this is not a comprehensive list of the many organizations we contribute to, these are some of our favorites!
