NOTTINGHAM, MD—ZIPS Dry Cleaners, which recently opened in the Perry Hall Square shopping center, has announced a new “Proud to Support Program,” which will support a local nonprofit every quarter.
Each quarter, ZIPS will choose a nonprofit working in its service area to promote and raise funds to support. ZIPS will pledge $250 to each selected nonprofit, plus all additional funds raised in store, and will help promote them in their social media and community outreach efforts.
“Even though we’re part of a larger organization, which allows us to offer amazing prices, at the heart of everything we’re a family business and we care about the community we serve,” explains owner Al Holcomb. “We care about what happens in our community and it’s an honor to introduce our Proud to Support program to help make even more of a difference for organizations that do so much for us all.”
In Perry Hall/Nottingham, the White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company will be the first nonprofit to receive support. WMVFC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides fire, rescue, and emergency medical services to the citizens of White Marsh, Perry Hall, Nottingham, and other communities within Baltimore and Harford counties. WMVFC operates two engines, an advanced life support ambulance, a four-wheel drive brush truck, two utility vehicles, and two rehab units.
WMVFC is an independent organization that falls under the auspice of the Baltimore County Fire Department. Members from the community dedicate their time training, providing emergency responses, fundraising, performing public fire safety education and community details.
Community members can stop by ZIPS Perry Hall at 4229 Ebenezer Road in Perry Hall Square to make a donation. They will be collecting funds for WMVFC from June through September.
