Laundry Love Notification

Temporarily Suspending Services
at Three Locations

This message is to share an update regarding Laundry Love,
in light of health concerns over coronavirus COVID-19.

To protect our volunteers, as well as those whom we serve, Church of the Transfiguration will temporarily suspend the three Laundry Love locations that we service. It is a difficult decision and one I have personally prayed on in my heart.

In light of the uncertainty of the situation, we felt it best to make this decision now in an attempt to provide advanced communication. We recognize that it will be difficult to get this message to many of the Laundry Love clients. We ask for your help in sharing this information with clients that may be or have been referred to the Laundry Love service. If you can, please share our update to your teams that communicate information.

The dates and locations that will be suspended are listed below. Our plan is to resume as normal in May. As will much of the world, we will continue to assess and monitor the happenings. Should information change or alter our plan, I will make you aware.

We will also keep our church website and Facebook page updated with information.

Thank you and know that we pray for the health, safety and well-being of all people at this fragile time in our world.

God Bless,
Tammy Schuster
Coordinator for Transfiguration

Laundry Love Overview

The Laundry Love initiative consists of regular opportunities to help people who are struggling financially by assisting them with their laundry expenses. For those living below the poverty line, washing clothes presents both a logistical problem and a financial hardship. Partnering with local laundromats in St Charles County, each month Laundry Love ministries provides loads and loads of clean clothes to those in need.  Laundry Love provides the quarters, laundry soap, dryer sheets and kind and compassionate volunteers.
WE TRY TO FULFILL

Our Important Values

Community

Laundry Love is a neighborhood movement, located right here in St. Charles County.  With our supply of laundry detergent and quarters, we serve those living in our community, who are struggling financially, by assisting them with their laundry costs.

Collaboration

Collaboration and everyday hospitality.  Together Trinity and Transfiguration are building trust within our community, through the simple act of clean laundry.  We are in partnership with Starcrest and Crossroads laundromats, to provide facilities that help foster a safe, respectful place to do laundry free of charge.

Commitment

Laundry Love calls us to live lives that return. Unity built by selfless concern, commitment and consistency.  It’s a commitment of time and resources.  Our volunteers donate a portion of their time each month; our churches are committed to supporting the financial needs of this ministry.  A life that returns is a practice of love.

      HISTORY OF LAUNDRY LOVE      

2006

Laundry Love is Born

The story of Laundry Love began with T-Bone (Eric), a homeless gentleman living in Ventura, California. In one particular conversation, a question was asked of him: "T-Bone, how can we come alongside your life in a way that would matter?" His response was honest and practical. "If I had clean clothes I think people would treat me like a human being."
