How Your Support Makes a Difference
When COVID-19 struck, forcing us to close our building, we moved our operations outdoors to continue providing food, medical care, restrooms, handwashing stations, and even showers in a mobile unit. The one program we could not move outside was laundry. With the summer heat and continued threat of COVID-19, laundry is more critical than ever to the health, safety, and dignity of the community’s most vulnerable. To meet this need, we’re partnering with a local laundromat to restart our laundry service. But this crucial program comes with a hefty price tag. We anticipate spending $50,000 on detergent and quarters for the machines before returning to our normal operations.
