At Klinke Cleaners, we are proud to say we have made community service a core part of our business from the beginning. In fact, we sometimes think the work we do to support Wisconsin communities might be more important than our dry cleaning services.

But as a customer, should you really care if your cleaners are active in a charitable way? Does it matter whether a business is contributing to local communities?

We think giving back isn’t just important, but a key definition of success. It’s the measuring stick we use to judge whether we truly reach our goals. If we didn’t, none of the other things we have accomplished would be worth as much. To help explain that point of view, here are some of the biggest reasons Klinke Cleaners remains so active in community service:

At Klinke, we want to see our success spread – when the communities we work in are doing well, so are we. That philosophy has always driven us to share our success with others. Growing our company doesn’t mean anything if it doesn’t add to the lives of those who around us… especially families and individuals who could use a helping hand.

Klinke Cleaners customers are always looking for ways to get involved – many of our charitable ideas come from Klinke customers, who are always looking for new ways to contribute to their own communities. Because we know how important it is for you to see your choices improve the lives of others, we keep looking for ways to pitch in and help.

Community Service adds something special to our business – there are lots of businesses that can grow, open new locations, and turn a profit. But how many of them really change lives? When we donate coats in the winter, or prom dresses in the spring, we get to experience a kind of joy you just can’t get from making a cash register ring. It’s cliché, but true: every time we give something, we get so much more in return.

Would men and women all over Wisconsin keep coming to Klinke for dry cleaning, clothing repair, and other related services if we weren’t so active in the community? Maybe, but they wouldn’t feel as good about it, and neither would we.

Over the years, we haven’t just built a successful business – we’ve helped to create bigger smiles, better futures, and stronger communities from Madison to Brookfield, Mequon, and beyond. That’s something we can all be proud of together.
