Standard Textile Combats Homelessness
(December, 2020) Standard Textile Co. Inc. of Cincinnati, Ohio, announces the launch of a national program to combat homelessness. The company is partnering with four nonprofit organizations across the United States to provide mobile shower services to people living either on the streets or in insufficient housing, with a goal of supporting 80,000 showers by the end of 2021. Through product donations, financial support and volunteerism, the company has continually supported efforts to make a meaningful impact in the communities where employees work, live and raise their families. To honor the company’s legacy of inspiring care, comfort, and change in communities, it is expanding its commitment by launching “Standard Textile Cares.” “Ending homelessness requires a comprehensive approach,” says Gary Heiman, Standard Textile’s president and CEO. “It begins by treating those experiencing homelessness with dignity and respect, which are basic values that our partner organizations offer. And it begins with essentials such as a safe place to bathe and a soft towel and blanket to provide comfort."
