Village East Cleaners Spearheading Donation Drive to Benefit St. Jude's Ranch for Children

LAS VEGAS — Village East Cleaners & Alterations (Village East Cleaners) is conducting a holiday donation drive to benefit St. Jude’s Ranch for Children now through Jan. 4. The company is collecting monetary donations; new, unwrapped gifts; and gently used books appropriate for children (ages 5 an up) and teens. Checks should be made payable to St. Jude’s Ranch and are tax deductible.

All monetary donors will be recognized with a certificate that will be displayed at Village East Cleaners.

“There children right here in our community who have been abused, forgotten and abandoned, with no homes and no families. They need and deserve our help and our compassion, especially now during what should be a most joyous time of year,” said Edwin Los, general manager of Village East Cleaners. “Our company and our customers have chosen to lend our support to St. Jude’s Ranch because of the remarkable work they do. It is our wish to give these kids a memorable holiday and let them know that people care.”

In addition to collecting donations and delivering them to St. Jude’s Ranch, Village East Cleaners will also make a monetary donation to the charity.
