What is a Laundry Love Project?
Laundry Love Projects (LLPs) are regular opportunities to help people who are struggling financially by assisting them with doing their laundry. Relationships are built, and LLPs become small communities of common concern in which participants often find that they receive assistance and benefit with other areas of their lives.
Upon hearing about Just One’s Laundry Love Project, we embarked upon this journey with you all, to connect deeper with the people struggling to get by here in Santa Ana.
Coming To a City Near You (from the Just One website)
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 through aid in education, basic medical care and assistance in job and housing placement.
LLP is open source, which allows us to assist others to start these localized efforts for the “one” throughout the US.
