Buffalo, NY: February 1st, 2011: In just under one month, customers of Urban Valet Dry Cleaners have donated over 50 pair of eyeglasses and cases to Jesse's Children Health Mission. Urban Valet, who partnered with Robyn Young of Great Erie Federal Credit Union, wishes to thank its dedicated clients who showed their support for this mission.


For many years, Jesse's Children Health Mission has brought groups of volunteers to the Dominican Republic. Doctors, dentists and optometrists tend to the people by using donated supplies.


In early January, containers were placed at all three of Urban Valet's locations here in the Buffalo area. Customers quickly caught on to the idea and began bringing in their glasses, sunglasses and cases. Local newspapers, associations, and television stations also helped spread the word.


Robyn Young, CEO of Great Erie F.C.U. is an active volunteer to the mission. She has a trip to the Dominican planned for March 2011 and will be bringing the eyeglasses collected here in WNY with her. The villagers will receive eye exams, with the donated eyeglasses being neutralized and re-prescribed to each.


Great Erie Federal Credit Union was founded in 1952 as the Orchard Park Central Schools Federal Credit Union. Since then, it has opened its services to much of the Southtowns community. On December 1st 2010, it unveiled its new name along with the addition of a drive-thru section. With 7000 members and over $50 million in assets, the company is proud to be growing in Orchard Park. Great Erie FCU is located at 4000 North Buffalo Street in Orchard Park.


Urban Valet Dry Cleaners was founded in 1995, and is owned by local businessman Eric Pyne. In August 2010, Urban Valet became the first and only dry cleaner in WNY to offer its customers the choice to use reusable garment bags instead of plastic. Customers can drop off garments at any Urban Valet location, or sign up for free home or office pick-up and delivery.

106 Evans Street, Hamburg, NY 14075
