On Tuesday, May 29th the West Ashley Young Adult Small Group is hosting a Free Laundry Night at Laundry Matters.
In 2015, Loving America Street undertook its biggest challenge to date: the acquisition of the neighborhood's last standing laundromat. Because few residents have cars or washers and dryers in their homes, the laundromat serves as a vital staple in the Eastside community. As the only laundry facility within walking distance for residents, Laundry Matters really does matter because it symbolizes the need for investment in the neighborhood.
The Small Group needs your help collecting quarters to help our neighbors on the eastside do laundry for their families. There will be buckets located around the church campus. Please consider dropping in a few extra quarters if you are able. Thank you for your generosity and support of this amazing ministry.
This month, John Grisham addresses some very real moral and ethical issues in The Rooster Bar; a story about a for-profit law school that is money-driven and does not really provide adequate education for the Bar for most of its students. The way three of their brighter students handle this is also pretty iffy, morally speaking, so come along and chime in with your opinions. We're especially hopeful that Debra Gammons may attend for this one.
A new Travel Club will meet once a month for people to gather to talk about travel experiences, future plans, and hopefully even take some weekend trips together. Contact Nicole (email@example.com or 630-853-4734) for more information.
