Dependable Cleaners has developed programs to help the local community. These programs include:
- Clean Suit Stimulus Package
We recognize the current economic situation, and continue to offer our Clean Suit Stimulus Package to out of work job seekers. Our Clean Suit Stimulus Package provides unemployed job seekers with free cleaning for three suits to help in their job quest. Individuals must provide proof of status in the form of an unemployment check stub to qualify. A suit may consist of a jacket and pants or a jacket and skirt. So far, over 400 suits have been cleaned.
- Read to Ride
Dependable Cleaners partners with several companies to promote summer reading programs in our communities. Our Read to Ride program donates bikes to students who read books throughout the summer. Learn More About Read to Ride.

Other Community Outreach
- AIDS Action Committee
Dependable Cleaners is contributing to the fight to end the AIDS/HIV epidemic. We collect clothing donations for the AIDS Action Committee’s Boomerangs store. Boomerangs is a resale store that supports the AAC by selling gently used clothes that have been donated by businesses and the local community. The proceeds go to help support the AAC’s services and programs. We provide Boomerang boxes at our stores for the community to drop off donations.
- Dorchester Boys & Girls Clubs
Each year Dependable Cleaners in Dorchester contributes a percentage of their August dry cleaning sales to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester. We feel it is our duty to help the local community to ensure our children have a fun and safe place to learn and play.
