A program called Laundry Love is dedicated to providing free laundry services to low-income families and individuals.
Laundry can be a significant monthly expense, so Laundry Love has stepped in to make this basic need accessible. The organization’s main goal is to raise awareness and get more individuals and businesses involved.
The idea of Laundry Love started about 20 years ago and has grown into a nationwide organization with over 250 locations. The Amarillo area currently has two laundromats that participate in this program.
According to Laundry Love officials, Saint Luke Presbyterian was the first one in Amarillo.
Every third Saturday, volunteers from the church head out to 10th Street Laundry to assist those in need of services.
The other Amarillo location is the South Georgia Laundry with a mission to pay it forward.
