Community Support

“Appreciate where you are and give back to the communities that have been good to you.” — Gary Gunderson

With this in mind, the Gunderson Family Companies strive to improve the quality of life in the communities in which we live, work, and play.  Our mission is to actively reach out to those in need and give back to those who have given so much to us.  We will seek to engage at a deeper level, encourage volunteerism among our staff, and work to enthusiastically contribute to helping you build a better community.


Gunderson Family Companies Support Our Communities

Free American Flag Cleaning

In honor of our Veterans and those currently serving our country, Gunderson will clean American Flags at no cost.

Toys for Tots

The Gunderson Family Companies are proud sponsors of the annual Toys for Tots campaign.  We help collect new, unwrapped toys each year, and distribute them as Christmas gifts to families in need in our community.

Community Clothes Closet

Community Clothes Closet provides free clothing to those in need and has been serving the Fox Valley 1980.  As a proud sponsor of the Community Clothes Closet and its mission, every Gunderson Cleaners location is an official drop site for your donated items.  Please join us in supporting this great year round program.

Coats for Kids

Since 2008, the Gunderson Family Companies have been a sponsor of the Coats for Kids drive.  Thousands of coats are collected in our community, cleaned free of charge and distributed by the Salvation Army to area children in need.

United Way – Fox Cities

Gunderson supports the United Way Fox Cities by encouraging our employees to give, advocate and volunteer.  Our hope is to help create better lives and a stronger community for all of us to enjoy.


Gunderson, along with NE Wisconsin Foot and Ankle, collect shoes for those in need.   Soles4Souls collects shoes (used and new) and distributes them to disaster victims and people living in poverty.
