Loads of Love

I have the privilege of working with a group of people who get together on the first Saturday of each month for an effort we call Loads of Love (link goes to our Facebook page -- feel free to "like" the page). I don't post this for publicity, but we're praying about expanding the project to include another day of the month (maybe another location, but most laundromats weren't interested in hosting, for whatever reason); we'll need volunteers for that.

Here's a description of Loads of Love from one of our fliers:

On [date goes here] we invite you to Five Points Laundromat (815 Wellman Ave, 35801) to wash and dry your clothes (up to three loads - for blankets and heavy items, one to two loads) free of charge or obligation. Just show up with dirty clothes and we'll provide detergent, fabric softener, bleach, and the washers and dryers so they'll be clean when you leave

Loads of Love happens the first Saturday of every month, from 8:30 until 11:30 in the morning. Coffee, orange juice, water, and snacks are a part of every Loads of Love event!

Yesterday was a great one. We helped about 40 people with their laundry. We have the chance to pray with them, share Christ with them, listen to what's going on with their lives, and let them get to know us better, too.

We're grateful for every donation of funds. Every bit goes to feed washers and driers unless we're told that we can use it for laundry detergent, etc.

If you live in the Huntsville, AL area and would like to help out with Loads of Love, comment below or send me an e-mail! Next one will be February 4.
