Meet the East End & Church Hill Together for Laundry Love

Laundry Love is not a service project or something you “do to” “or for” people. It’s an expression of living “with” others.

  • people joining together.
  • not only about affecting but also being affected. It fosters a mutual life change through relational reciprocity.
  • encourage everyday hospitality and rebuilding or rekindling trust within a community or neighborhood through human care. Unity built by selfless concern and consistency.
  • to live lives that return.
  • through the neutral space of a laundromat, every guest and stranger can become a friend. This idea tears at the labeled constructs of “us” and “them” and erodes the societal, economic and cultural divides that separate people.
