Laundry Love is one of our local missions that focuses on taking care of a single need to help provide and protect the dignity of our brothers, sisters, neighbors, and friends. For a few quarters and some soap we are able to help individuals and families wash their laundry and respond to a very real need in our community.
The story of Laundry Love began with T-Bone (Eric), a homeless gentleman living in Ventura Calif. In one particular conversation, a question was asked of him: “T-Bone, how can we come alongside your life in a way that would matter?” His response was honest and practical. “If I had clean clothes I think people would treat me like a human being.”
Springfield Faith Center beliefs that helping people who have lost their way, their value, their identity and their dignity to feel human, like they belong and they are loved is more than a mission or an “outreach”. …it’s an active of worship to a loving God who created us in His Image. We have seen our partnership with God lead to many beautiful conversations with our community and people who we may not see in any other context.
Currently, our team is very small and works on a very limited budget. We have a huge need to add two or three people to our team. The commitment is small for the impact we have in our community. If you are interested in joining the Laundry Love team please contact the office or Beverly Engman at [email protected]
Laundry Love is held 2nd Monday of each month from 5-8pm, and the last Thursday of each month from 10am to 12pm, at Holiday Coin Laundromat on 14th street across from Grocery Outlet.
