Oakbrook Terrace, IL (PRWEB) October 02, 2017
The LaundryCares Foundation has partnered with The Laundry Project to help bring aid in the form of free laundry services to areas in Florida affected by Hurricane Irma. The Laundry Project, a charity operated by the organization Current Initiatives, has scheduled a very robust series of events throughout the areas affected by Hurricane Irma which has left many people without the means by which to clean their clothes. The LaundryCares Foundation, a 501(c)3 charity of the Coin Laundry Association, normally provides financial support through fundraising to The Laundry Project to help facilitate events. During this time of increased activity, the LaundryCares Foundation has quintupled its normal contribution to the Laundry Project to assist in the mission of fulfilling the basic need of clean clothes for the people in these communities ravaged by the storm.
The Laundry Project has planned to provide at least seven charity events throughout Florida, and has already run several of these including an event in Tampa Bay, FL. At each event, The Laundry Project has helped families to wash clothes and linens at no charge having all services paid to laundry owners through donations by volunteers. While each event is executed, volunteers not only assist patrons, but they also entertain the children within families. Funding these events is important to the success of the project so that essential items such as soap, bleach, and other cleaning agents can be provided. Additionally, other services including child care and activities, food and water, security, and promotion of each event require funds which are contributed by volunteers.
Anyone interested in giving back to their community is asked to consider participating in the form of a tax deductible, charitable donation to LaundryCares. For information on how to donate, please visit https://laundrycares.org/you-can-help/donate/.
The LaundryCares Foundation was established as a charitable foundation (501c-3) in 2006 and is administered by the Coin Laundry Association. The mission of the foundation is to provide laundry services and education to those in need in communities throughout the United States.
The Laundry Project is an initiative of Current Initiatives, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization incorporated in Florida that started with young adults committed to educating others on current social initiatives and mobilizing them to bring about change. The Laundry Project assists low-income families with meeting a basic need – washing clothes and linens, by turning laundromats into community centers of hope. Laundry fees are paid for while volunteers assist with laundry services, entertain children, and create a caring space at the laundromat.
