"Laundered with Kindness" is an event held annually to help ease burdens by providing wash, dry, fold, load/unload laundry, dry cleaning, and donated laundry products. We target laundromats, dry cleaners, and homeless facilities with the support of cleaning companies, businesses, volunteers, and in-kind donations, helping more families and making a larger impact. Being a single parent, one of the struggles parents face is basic laundry essentials. I remember as a child bundling up loads of clothes in sheets, scraping up all the loose change we could find, and using the cheapest detergent. Sometimes we even resorted to using dish soap, instead. It was hard not having transportation, laundry supplies, or money to wash or dry. Choosing between buying groceries, gas, or washing clothes is a struggle many families face regarding basic essentials, including the homeless community with limited access to clean clothes and laundromats. Since 2016, we've celebrated Laundered with Kindness Day the second Saturday in September in Galveston, County, including Texas City, La Marque, Dickinson, Hitchcock, and Galveston. This event generates a wave of kindness in our cities. Our Righteous Acts of Kindness volunteer group has impacted more than 300 unsuspecting angels, washing approximately 650 loads and drying approximately 575 loads. We have made in-kind donations of reading and activity books for waiting customers and donations of laundry supplies and products to families in need. All it takes is one Righteous Act to change a moment. In everything, we’ve learned it’s vital to show others how kind life can truly be.
