Downtown Cleveland Small Business Repair Fundraiser
As a firm believer in community and supporting local businesses in the city of Cleveland, CLE Clothing Co. is partnering with fellow small businesses in downtown Cleveland affected by recent looting, to rebuild the place we call home. This is not a political stance, but an attempt to support the small business community within Cleveland that have already been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cleveland is a proud and humble city. We rally around each other in times of need. Now more than ever, CLE Clothing Co. and the many small businesses located in Downtown Cleveland need the support of its community. Here's how you can help:
- Contribute what you can financially via our GoFundMe link. All funds raised will be evenly split between CLE Clothing Co. and the businesses that partner with us, to replace damaged inventory and make repairs.
- Volunteer your time and skills. If you are interested in helping with clean up, making repairs, or are a business within Cleveland able to provide free or discounted services, please contact us here.
If you're a small business in need and would like to partner with us, please click here to connect with us.
Together we will see it through. We are Cleveland strong.
- Team CLE
Our apparel might be the most visible aspect of CLE Clothing Co., but we also work philanthropically with the Cleveland non-profit community. It’s our way of giving back to the city that gives so much to us. We support our community in many ways, whether it is creating a t-shirt design to raise funds for a great cause or event sponsorships. Over the past three years we have donated over 6000 sweatshirts, winter caps and pairs of socks to those in need via organizations that help those in need.
Have a different idea on how we can work together? We'd love to hear from you! For event sponsorship and large-scale donation requests, please refer to our “Partnerships” section below.

I'm seeking donated goods from CLE Clothing for my fundraiser. What do I need to do?
At CLE Clothing, giving back to the community that has given so much to us is super important. Looking for some Cleveland flair to add to a raffle item for your next fundraising event? We would love to help! Fill out our Donation Request Form and send it back to any of our store managers 4 to 6 weeks prior to your event. Please note that we do receive a high volume of requests; however, we will respond to inquiries in the order that they are received and as quickly as possible!
I'd like CLE Clothing to sponsor and/or participate in my upcoming event. Do you even do stuff like that?
Totally! We love to partner with other local businesses and organizations on projects that promote civic pride and celebrate the Cleveland spirit. Over the years, we’ve participated in everything from discussion panels, local music and arts festivals, Big Wheel races (yes, really) and 5Ks. Have a cool event coming up and want CLE Clothing involved? Contact Jamie Boyer at email@example.com. *Please see question above if you are looking for a raffle or donated item* If your proposed partnership is event-based, please submit your request at least 4 to 6 weeks before the event date.
