As the Coin Laundry Association celebrates the third week in our “Month of Thanks” to show our appreciation for our members and the industry, we would like to recognize some of our members across the country and the ways they have graciously given back to their communities:
David Delaney, owner of Sudz City Laundromat in Millbury, Mass., offers free food at his in-business food pantry and provides no-cost laundry service to those who might need a helping hand. He has collected, cleaned and given out reused blankets and quilts, and distributed winter jackets.
Tom Landenbeger, owner of Veterans Coin Laundry in Jacksonville, Fla., hosted “The Laundry Project COVID-19 Relief Effort” in October, where volunteers washed and dried clothes for 50 families.
Paul Hansen, owner of Su Nueva Lavanderia in Chicago, volunteered his store to serve as a neighborhood polling site for the recent presidential election. Paul has donated use of his store as a polling site for many elections.
Rita and Greg Ferrero, owners of Sierra Laundry in El Dorado, Calif., are launching “Wash Wednesdays for a Cause,” where one Wednesday each month the store will partner with a local philanthropic group or school and donate 50 percent of the proceeds generated between noon and 10:00 p.m.
These owners are just a small representation of the many CLA members giving back to the communities they serve. The CLA would like to thank all of you for your generosity and support of those who need it most.
