A HUMAN DIGNITY INITIATIVE
The Laundry Love initiative consists of regular opportunities to come alongside people who are struggling financially by assisting them with their laundry. Laundry love partners with groups and local laundromats in cleaning clothes and linens of low-income or no-income families and individuals. We see the laundromat as a place where strangers become friends, people are known by name, hope is hustled, and the worth of every human being is acknowledged and celebrated.
Laundry Love Northwest Arkansas is a registered affiliate of the National Laundry Love initiative
The Laundry Love Story
The story of Laundry Love began when T-Bone (Eric), a houseless gentleman living in Ventura Calif, was asked a question of him:
“How can we come alongside your life in a meaningful way?”
His response was honest and practical.
“IF I HAD CLEAN CLOTHES, I THINK PEOPLE WOULD TREAT ME LIKE A HUMAN BEING.”
– Eric (t-bone)
