Please join Soil-Away as we support our good friends at The Dry Cleaner by Val in their quest to raise $10,000 for Brigham and Women Hospital through the March of Dimes. Team Dry Cleaner by Val will be walking on May 10th in Boston for this great cause. March of Dimes Mission is “to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.”
The Dry Cleaner by Val is dedicated to this cause because of a recent miracle within their family. Richard and Gracielle Swanson had a premature son born at 26 weeks weighing in at 2.5 pounds. The Brigham and Women Hospital’s NICU team helped support baby Roy until he grew healthy and was able to go home. Please learn more and DONATE HERE!

Soil-Away Director of Client Services, Josh Solloway, recently served as a volunteer judge at the New Hampshire DECA State Career Development Conference. The annual event took place at the Radisson Center of NH in Manchester on February 13th. It drew hundreds of high school business students from around the state. Student participants competed in various events testing their entrepreneurial, management, and marketing skills.
“This was my second consecutive year participating as a judge,” states Solloway. “It is such a great opportunity for the students to challenge themselves and really learn a lot that they can apply to everyday life and their future.”
DECA’s mission is to “prepare emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.” They are a “non-profit career-tech organization for high school students who are enrolled in marketing, business, and business related courses. It is a curriculum based, leadership focused organization which offers students a chance to develop their business, entrepreneurial, and management skills as well as develop social and team building capabilities.”
Soil-Away founder, Jack Solloway, was recently recognized by the New Hampshire Chapter of the Special Olympics for his faithful support of the organization. Jack has supported the organization through sponsorship since 2000. “The Special Olympics is an important partner of the community,” states Jack. “They have a great mission and it is a privilege to have supported them for so many years.”
The mission of Special Olympics New Hampshire “is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.”
