Thank you, Waverly Laundry!

Recently, we were asked by the manager of Waverly Laundry if we would be interested in offering a "laundry voucher" to our guests. Currently, we have a laundry room at our women and children's shelter for guests there, but there is none at Michigan Avenue for our men. Providing a place for these men to clean their clothing is a great need, and not one that most people think of. Waverly Laundry has already reached out, through Homeless Angels, to meet part of this need, so their generosity in expanding that service to try to reach more people is just an example of a true heart of compassion. This new opportunity produces a new need for detergent pods for ease of transport for those men utilizing this opportunity. Our donation drop-off site is 607 E. Michigan Avenue, with preferred hours of 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thanks again, Waverly Laundry, for your heart of compassion! Thank you for being a rescuer!
