About

Clean Ones Cares Logo_WebCharitable giving is an important part of what we do here at Clean Ones and we’ve developed our Clean Ones Cares program to help support both our local and national communities.  We work to support causes that are important to our consumers, such as women’s health, children’s educational opportunities, protecting animals, disaster clean up & relief and fighting hunger.  We also continually donate our gloves to programs that feed the hungry and help families stay safe and clean at home.  Clean Ones Cares strives to inspire others to get involved and help make a difference in the lives of others.
