Zengeler Cleaners Renews Commitment to Glass Slipper Project


Illinois’ Largest Dry Cleaners will once again serve as official drop-off location

Northbrook, IL, October 24, 2017: Zengeler Cleaners and the Glass Slipper Project (GSP) have announced the renewal of their partnership that helps thousands of high school women experience the joy of prom. Zengeler Cleaners looks forward to its 17th year working with the Glass Slipper Project. As the official north suburban collection point for GSP, they'll accept donations of lovingly-worn prom dresses and accessories at all eight (8) of its locations in Lake and Cook Counties.

"The Glass Slipper Project is extremely excited to welcome back Zengeler Cleaners as an official drop-off location for our 2018 collection drive," noted Liz Kores, a volunteer member of the Board of Directors for Glass Slipper Project. "Their ongoing support of GSP is truly amazing. We are fortunate to have many individuals and businesses that combine to make our efforts a success. Zengeler Cleaners is certainly one of the anchors of our program."

The Glass Slipper Project was founded by women who recognized that many girls cannot afford the luxury of spending big dollars for prom, no matter how special that night may be. The organization distributes the formal dresses and accessories free of charge to these students at Glass Slipper "boutiques," where each student receives individual assistance from a volunteer "personal shopper." The 2015 collection drive kicks off right after the first of the year, with many participating schools already lined up and ready to help.

"Zengeler Cleaners looks forward to another fabulous collection effort on behalf of the Glass Slipper Project," said Tom Zengeler, President of the Midwest's oldest and largest cleaning company. "Their work provides an extremely important service for teenagers in low income communities at a very vulnerable time in their lives. We are proud of our 17-year relationship with Glass Slipper and are excited about the upcoming collection drive."

Local support for GSP has increased annually since it was founded nearly 20 years ago. This growth has helped Zengeler Cleaners set new collection records almost every year. "One reason we know the positive impact Glass Slipper Project has on so many lives is because each year, we receive numerous inquiries from local schools and organizations asking how they, too, can support this cause," continued Zengeler.
