Lots of laundry, lots of love …

Time flies … Yesterday, we had our fourth Laundry Love, and it was busy as ever. The first guests started to line up as early as 8:30 while we were still setting up tables and rolling racks to display the clothes and other items that generous supporters had donated to us: From gently used jeans, t-shirts, sweaters, jackets and shoes to toiletry bags containing travel sized personal hygiene products and brand new socks and underwear.

Many of the young people who come to do their laundry for free once a month literally only own the clothes they wear, so it is especially important that we are able to provide them with a pair of jeans or sweat pants and a t-shirt to change into while they get their laundry done.

The most sought after items are clean socks and sneakers. The young homeless spend countless hours walking around, and their footwear tends to be in dire shape, and we always appreciate receiving donations of new socks and used, but good shoes.
