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.
Help us stock the church freezer with meals that we can take, as needed, to church members who have lost a loved one, had a baby, been sick, had surgery, etc. Contact Liv at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
