Laundry Love Begins!

Pacific Unitarian is launching our Laundry Love ministry in February.
Laundry Love is a national organization that partners with local groups and
laundromats to clean clothes and linens for low-income and no-income
families and individuals. On the second Saturday of each month, we will
assist people with their laundry at La Familia Laundromat at 1739 Lomita Blvd,
Lomita. Our inaugural date is Saturday, March 9, from noon to 3:00 pm.
You can participate by donating –

* detergent pods (pods are needed instead of powder detergent for easy
measurement and distribution)
* dryer sheets
* quarters or cash to pay for all those loads

Or you can volunteer. There are two shifts – 11:30 am to 1:30 pm, and 1:30
pm to 3:30 pm. Volunteering consists of signing people in, assisting with
the washers and dryers, and visiting with people. Volunteers don’t handle
the clothing, instead they help people get machines started, add the soap
and dryer sheets, and keep track of when machines are available There’s
plenty of down time to get to chat with our guests.

Stop by the Laundry Love table on the patio starting Sunday, January 20 with
any donations or to sign up to volunteer. You can also sign up to volunteer by sending the date and time you are interested in to Janet Kissner at or Andy Kissner at To learn more, please contact Laundry Love Team Leaders Andy and Janet Kissner or Tracy Blender, see directory for contact information.
