Community Involvement

Supporting Our Communities & Giving Back

Lewis Cleaners is a company built on a foundation of integrity, loyalty, and communication. As part of his philosophy in building company culture, Lewis truly believes to be successful you must dedicate time, efforts, energy and services to your community. 

At Lewis Cleaners we are grateful to have the opportunity to not only provide excellent cleaning experiences to our clients, but we also enjoy spending extra time being active participants in our community. It humbles us to know we can make a difference in and around our community and enjoy participating in many associations from fund-raisers to food drives.

The Lewis Cleaners team is committed to the vision and success of our community and with relentless effort will continue to support the community devoting time, efforts, energy and services today and in the future.

Annual Toy & Food Drive

During the Holiday Season, Lewis Cleaners feels that it is very important to remember and give back what we can to families and persons who are less fortunate by holding an annual Food & Toy Drive. Last year’s efforts were a complete success with the help from the staff at CODY BROCK! We collected canned food for the 2nd Harvest Food Bank, and had so many donations that our barrel was overflowing! We also collected toys for the families that lived in the Shelter Networks Haven Family House and had such a positive outpour of donations for the families. Our team at Lewis Cleaners and CODY BROCK personally wrapped and passed out the gifts to all the families & children.
