Current Initiatives is hosting its third annual Tampa Bay Laundry Day on Saturday, Aug. 19 to ease the financial burden laundry services can place on lower-income families.
The multi-location event is part of the Laundry Project, which provides the funds, detergent and other items needed to wash and dry the clothes and linens of families in need. Laundry fees are paid for while volunteers assist with laundry services, entertain children, and create a caring space at the laundromat.
During the 2016 Laundry Day, more than 2,000 loads of laundry were washed for 185 families.
Between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., the following laundromats will participate:
Best Laundromats Coin Laundry, 40976 U.S. Hwy. 19 N., Tarpon Springs
