How Laundry Love Citrus Heights Got Started–Our Story
One November morning, a group of men met for breakfast. While eating, they discussed what they could do to help members of the community who are unhoused or struggling financially. One idea was to buy warm socks for the homeless.
A man at an adjacent booth stopped by and mentioned he overheard the conversation. He explained that he was homeless he had plenty of socks, but needed a place to wash those socks. Doing laundry is expensive and he couldn’t expect to ever get a job wearing dirty clothes.
After learning about Laundry Love, the group started a chapter in Citrus Heights in December 2016. Partnering with Debbie, the owner of Citrus Heights’ Greenback Coin Wash, we have been able to wash and dry thousands of loads of laundry for our neighbors.
