GracePoint Church and the Lost Sock Laundromat teamed up to offer free laundry in Wichita, Kansas
Laundry is often an issue inside poverty stricken communities that many don’t often think about
GracePoint Church and the LostSock Laundromat have began a campaign called Laundry Love
Every third Thursday from 5:00 pm to 8:00 people in the community will be able to do their laundry free of charge
When you think of problems in poverty stricken areas and homeless communities, there is one issue that is often overlooked; the ability, or lack there of, to do laundry.
Those living in poverty typically do not have the largest wardrobe. Many are forced to wear the same clothes day after day for long periods of time. While some may suggest to simply go to a laundromat, if you are struggling to feed yourself, chances are you do not have the spare $8.00 to spend on laundry.
In Wichita, Kansas, GracePoint Church has paired up with the Lost Sock Laundromat located at pin 921 S Seneca St, Wichita, KS to offer free laundry on the third Thursday of every month from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The ability to do free laundry is something that can mean the world to some.
The campaign is called “Laundry Love.” A description on the Facebook event page reads as follows:
The Laundry Love initiative consists of regular opportunities to help people who are struggling financially by assisting them with doing their laundry. For those who are homeless or living below the poverty line, washing clothes presents both a logistical problem and a financial hardship. Laundry Love partners with local laundromats in cleaning the clothes of those living in shelters, motels, cars, garages and on the streets. Through generous donations from our community we are able to offer 100% free laundry to all who are in need.
GracePoint Laundry Love will happen every THIRD THURSDAY each month.
There is nothing worse than being stuck in dirty clothes for days at a time. Many forget that such a small action can have such a large impact on a community. Be sure to share this with a friend that may appreciate this service. The campaign begins on Thursday June 15.
