Everyone Deserves Clean Clothes Community Center Hosting Free Two-Week Wash & Fold Event
BALTIMORE – The Greenmount West Community Center on Guildford Avenue has been busy raising funds for its next mobile laundry project since the spring.
“So far we have 20 families who have signed up,” said Akilah McCrorey. “This is what this community needs and we are happy to be able to provide it to them.”
Starting Monday, families and community members who have registered will be able to step down and use a portable laundromat. GWCC provides tote bags with detergent.
“It’s absolutely free,” said director of special projects Kennedy McDaniel. “People will be able to wash and dry two loads of laundry on site. “
McDaniel said that after working with clients at various programming events, it was evident that the area lacked a laundromat. It was clear that people were fighting just to get clean clothes.
“Greenmount West is a place where we have condos for $ 400,000 and $ 500,000 and we don’t have a grocery store and we don’t have a laundromat,” McDaniel said. “How can we say that we are meeting people’s needs, people’s basic needs like food and shelter security and clean clothes if we don’t? GWCC is doing what we can to solve the problem . “
The wash and fold event will run from June 14-27.
“Our hope is that people see our efforts and will eventually invest in the community and give people what they need,” McCrorey said. “That, or we can do a project like this quarterly.”
