CLA, Eastern Funding, LaundryCares and Laundry Depot Team Up to Provide Free Laundry Services to Those in Need
From 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., visitors will be able to use state-of-the-art washers and dryers free of charge at the newly renovated 9,200-square-foot self-service laundry, located at 1639 Fifth Avenue on Long Island. The newly refurbished Laundry Depot features more than 120 washers and over 150 dryers.
In addition, there will be local vendors at this event, providing food, snacks and family entertainment – as well as a local radio station playing music. All guests will receive free gift bags; plus, a raffle will be held during this event, in which lucky guests have the opportunity to win such items as bicycles and gift cards.
“Coming off an exciting and rewarding LaundryCares event in Atlanta, we are thrilled to offer yet another LaundryCares event in New York,” said Brian Grell, executive vice president of Eastern Funding. “With more than 50 volunteers already registered and more than 300 families expected to participate, this event promises to give back to the community, continuing the long history of charitable giving from the coin laundry industry.”
The LaundryCares Foundation, which was established by the CLA in 2006, focuses on providing laundry services and education to those in need. To learn more about this upcoming event or to donate to this important cause, please visit the LaundryCares Foundation website.
