"We are really looking forward to expanding our support and bringing the Laundry Project to Austin,"
May 6, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Current of Tampa Bay, Inc. is introducing its Laundry Project to Austin, TX residents Saturday, May 3. The project provides complimentary laundry services to low-income families and offers the necessary items needed to wash their clothes. The event will take place from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Wash Day Laundry located at 8213 Brodie Lane.
This is Current's first Landry Project in Texas and their volunteers are eager to make this a regular project city. "We are really looking forward to expanding our support and bringing the Laundry Project to Austin," said Jason Sowell, President of Current of Tampa Bay. Inc. "The ability to have clean clothes is one of the most dignifying things we take for granted and with our expansion we are able to help restore pride in residents across the county."
Local friends of Current will be volunteering their time to this project, however, Current continues to encourage community members to volunteer if possible. Donations of much needed supplies including detergent, quarters (rolls of $10), one-gallon Ziploc bags, garbage bags, coloring books, crayons, fabric softener and laundry baskets are welcome. More information about this and other upcoming projects can be found online at www.LaundrybyCurrent.org.
