Announcing an additional location and date in Teton Valley! Established 2003 in Ventura California, Laundry Love washes the clothes and bedding of low/no income families and person(s) across the U.S. Partnering with diverse groups and laundromats nationwide, we brighten the lives of thousands of people each month through love, dignity, and detergent.
The story of Laundry Love began with T-Bone (Eric), a houseless gentleman living in Ventura Calif. In one particular conversation, a question was asked of him:
“How can we come alongside your life in a meaningful way?” His response was honest and practical. “If I had clean clothes I think people would treat me like a human being.”
The Laundry Love initiative consists of regular opportunities to come alongside people who are struggling financially by assisting them with their laundry. We see the laundromat as a place where strangers become friends, people are known by name, hope is hustled, and the worth of every human being is acknowledged and celebrated.
In 2018, St. John’s Church began a partnership with the Jackson Laundromat to provide laundry services to our community. We provide the quarters and detergent for laundry on the second Thursday of every month at 5:30 p.m.
We've just added a new Laundry Love date in Victor, Idaho at the General Laundry Co., which runs monthly on the fourth Wednesday 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. Yesterday we celebrated the third month in a row!
We encourage anyone who feels called to help, reach out to us at 307-733-2603 or email Lonnie.
