Free Laundry Day and Relief Fund for Victims of California Wildfires

HAYWARD, CA, U.S.A., October 23, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Three northern California laundromat owners have teamed up with laundry equipment manufacturer, Dexter Laundry, and its local distributor, Western State Design (WSD), to raise funds and sponsor a Free Laundry Day on October 30, 2017, for residents affected by the recent wildfires.

The scale of destruction caused by the wildfires in the California wine country is heartbreaking. The fires’ death toll is rising and many victims are still missing. Thousands of residents have been left homeless as the wildfires raged out of control through their neighborhoods.

Even for area residents whose homes or property weren’t directly destroyed by the deadly fires, the smell of smoke is everywhere and has permeated clothing, bedding and other possessions. People are in dire need of clean laundry.

Three local laundromat owners have figured out a way to help. In partnership with their local laundry equipment suppliers they will hold a FREE LAUNDRY DAY on October 30, 2017, 10 a.m. — 6 p.m. Community members are welcome to do their laundry free of charge at each of these three laundromats located in areas affected by the wildfires:

Wildfires Victims Relief Fund
In addition to sponsoring the Free Laundry Day, Western State Design and Dexter Laundry have set up a matching relief fund for others to donate money to aid the fire victims. Together, WSD and Dexter will match the first $6000 in tax deductible donations to the fund, administered by the Coin Laundry Association’s LaundryCares Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. To donate to help fire victims, go to www.laundrycares.org/sonoma17

The devastation and human suffering caused by the northern California wildfires is immense. Community members are rising to the occasion and finding different ways to help. In this case, some local laundry business owners and their local laundry equipment suppliers figure giving residents access to nearby large capacity commercial laundry machines free of charge for a day might just bring a tiny bit of relief.
