Sometimes you have to be grateful for the little things. Today, I’m grateful for the washer and dryer. I didn’t know this before, but many kids go to school everyday dirty. Their families can’t afford to pay for laundry. Think about it: a family of four can go through 5 or more loads of laundry a week. At about $5 a load, that can quickly add up to $100 per month at the local laundromat. When you throw in sheets, towels, blankets, detergent, fabric softener, the costs just go up from there.
That’s why we’re doing the Laundry Love Project today. We simply go into a local laundromat and give some much needed help to those who don’t have what we have. It’s one of our Passion Projects we enjoy doing. We provide free detergent and fabric softener, build relationship with the patrons and management there, and we’ll share a grilled hot dog or two in the process.
So the next time you hear your washer on its spin cycle, or you pull those soft & warm whites out the dryer, or you slip those cotton socks on your feet, be grateful. Someone doesn’t have what you have.
