Laundry Love:
Messiah Fairview Park
Connecting People to Jesus

Food and shelter are basic needs, but clean clothes can mean a renewed level of self-respect for the underprivileged. Laundry Love is a national program that helps people in need afford clean clothes. For some people on a very limited budget, a pile of dirty laundry means making a choice, between having clean clothes or a meal, or buying gas. Simply by alleviating the financial burden of washing and drying clothes, families can spend their money on food, medicine, utilities, and other necessities.

Laundry Love: Messiah Fairview Park is always free and always the last Thursday of the month at Leo’s Laundromat, 20210 Lorain Rd, from 6-8 pm. A free casual meal is provided, along with activities for children.

Clean clothes won’t solve every problem, but it’s a start. If you know of anyone in need of free laundry, please help spread the word. Laundry Love: Messiah Fairview Park creates a bridge to people who are unchurched and perhaps even skeptical of church.

To volunteer or donate, contact Laundry Love: Messiah Fairview Park Project Director Janice Snyder at [email protected] or visit us on Facebook. Our volunteers are inspired by a sense that what they are doing that makes a difference! https://www.facebook.com/LaundryLoveMessiahFairviewPark/
