WHAT IS THE LAUNDRY TRUCK LA?
The Laundry Truck LA is a mobile laundry truck that will service those in extreme need in the downtown and greater Los Angeles area.
WHY DO WE NEED THE LAUNDRY TRUCK LA?
Providing laundry access to those in need promotes cleanliness, hygiene and overall self esteem. The LA Fashion District is situated alongside the community of Skid Row, so we aim to build awareness among the fashion industry and bring this much needed service to our neighbors.
TOTAL HOMELESS POPULATION (LA County): 57.8K
*74% unsheltered, 26% sheltered
%CHILDREN UNDER 18: 9% (5.4K)
% WOMEN: 31% (17.9K)
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We have a motivated team who will run the day-to-day operations. The truck will be outfitted with 6 washer/dryer sets and will operate for 4 hours a day, 3-5 days a week. That's 5,000 loads per year! We need to raise $150,000 to make it happen and cover operations for a year.
