Laundry Love

For those living below the poverty line, washing clothes presents both a logistical problem and a financial hardship. From a conversation with a local homeless friend who conveyed this basic need, the Laundry Love Project™ (LLP) was birthed.  Laundry Love Projects partner with local laundromats in cleaning the clothes of those living in shelters, motels, cars, garages and on the streets. It is our mission to take laundromats and convert them into hubs of relief, granting reprieve to those living in oppressive poverty.This “local edition” Cobblestone Project Initiative is implementing an initiative created by the Just One organization to bring this beautiful idea to our communities.contact:  LLP @cobblestoneproject.org
