Laundry Love began in 2003. Somebody asked a homeless person named Eric, “Hey man, what can we do for you? What would make a huge impact on your life?” The homeless person thought about it and said,
“If I had clean clothes,
I think people would treat me like a human being.”
At Laundry Love Georgetown, strangers become friends, people are known by name, hope is hustled, and the worth of every human being is acknowledged and celebrated.
Laundry Love Georgetown has a simple and very clear mission….. to provide a free laundry service in a friendly and respectful environment to lift self-esteem, restore dignity, and contribute to the health and hygiene which come from wearing clean clothes.
For hundreds of families in Georgetown, Laundry Love offers some financial relief, so families don’t have to make some tough decisions. Fill up the gas tank or do laundry. Buy groceries or do laundry. Pay the electric bill or do laundry.
