Calling All Laundry Lovers!

Yes-- we did say laundry lovers!

Let me explain.


Thanks to the generosity of so many people in our community, Catholic Charities' Refugee Resettlement Program has an amazing stock of donated comforters, blankets and sheets that will be used in apartments for refugee families that have been forced to leave their home country because of war and violence. Read more about Refugee Resettlement here.


Part of an apartment set-up process through the Refugee Resettlement Program is providing basic necessities, like blankets, sheets and other bedding. So, after all of these items are generously donated, volunteers are needed to help take loads of the items to the laundromat to be washed.


That's where you laundry-lovers come in!


Volunteers can offer to pick up a load or two to launder, and then return it clean and ready to provide a safe, warm and dignified place for people coming from unspeakable circumstances.
