The Clean Connection Laundry Depot is seeking donations for the purchase of laundry gift vouchers for the homeless. The goal is to raise enough to give each homeless person one load of laundry per week for 52 weeks a huge positive impact in this sorely overlooked area of human need.

YOU CAN HELP. Consider giving the gift of clean clothes. Your House of Worship, book club, fraternity, business or organization can donate as a group. $416.00 buys 52 loads of laundry for a homeless person struggling to regain dignity and self esteem. (That's one load of laundry each week for a full year!) If you don't have that much, $208 buys 26 loads, and $104 buys 13 loads.

Here is how it all began...

Brushing a few dried leaves from his jacket and straightening his collar the young man seemed to be bracing himself for yet another rejection as he prepared to speak. “Excuse me sir,” he began. “I have been homeless for the past 6 months and finally, after weeks of internet job hunting, I was granted an opportunity for a job interview. Unfortunately, I have no clean clothes.”

For a moment, my mind went numb. Then it began filling up with possibilities, as if a light bulb had begun shining in the dark over-looked place of human need. How many homeless people look and smell the way they do simply because they can’t afford the cost of laundry?

Returning as from a day-dream I realized that the young man wasn’t finished… “If you would be kind enough to wash my clothing,” he bargained on, “I promise to come back and pay you as soon as I get my first paycheck.”

For us at the Clean Connection Laundry Depot, this was a wake-up call and a “no-brainer”. What had to be done was something that we do each and every day. We knew that we could actually have a huge positive impact that would be both meaningful and would have a measurable effect on those who need it most; the homeless population. With your help we won’t have to stop doing it. Our society has grown to automatically associate filth and stench with the homelessness. Your gift will help us to change all that.
