At a celebratory event in California’s capital city on Wednesday, State Senator Ben Allen, pictured, honoured GreenEarth Affiliate, Door To Door Cleaners, as Small Business of the Year for the 26th Senate District. While typically serving the Beverly Hills, Brentwood, El Segundo, Hermosa Beach, Malibu, Manhattan Beach, Pacific Palisades, Redondo Beach, Santa Monica, and West Hollywood communities with an array of textile and garment care services, the family-owned and operated

business pivoted during the pandemic to sew facial coverings for frontline medical workers, producing more than 5,000 homemade masks in the first two months.                                    

“Our family story and this prestigious award is a testament to the fact that a California Dream is still alive,” said Sajid and Habib Veera, brothers and co-owners of Door To Door Cleaners. “We remain committed to helping local residents and serving our community – whether that means creating personal protective equipment during a pandemic or providing our traditional dry-cleaning services.”

“In spite of challenging circumstances and business closures due to the pandemic, Door To Door Cleaners stepped up to meet the sudden demand for PPE by leveraging their tailoring capacity to help our heroic first responders and medical community,” said Senator Allen (D – Santa Monica). “The Veera family exemplifies commitment to the community.”

For the last two decades, legislators from across California have each chosen a Small Business of the Year in their district. Former Senate District 26 Small Businesses of the Year include The Albright and Beach City Baseball.
