WHAT IS THE LAUNDRY TRUCK LA?
The Laundry Truck LA is a free mobile laundry service that will provide many families, men, women & children experiencing homelessness in the downtown and greater Los Angeles area with clean clothes. Fundraising efforts are being led by Dolan Group Inc., a Los Angeles-based, modern, socially responsible fashion company.
WHY DO WE NEED THE LAUNDRY TRUCK LA?
With the LA Fashion District situated alongside the community of Skid Row, Dolan's mission to serve the homeless became clear. Accessible personal care services, like laundry, truly impacts lives, and can make the difference of securing employment or housing.
DID YOU KNOW?
LA County's homeless population is 2nd highest in the nation at 57.8k, and unofficially estimated over 100k, 74% unsheltered.
%CHILDREN UNDER 18: 9% (5.4K), 20% unsheltered
% WOMEN: 31% (17.9K), 63% unsheltered
Our goal is to build awareness for this cause and come together to bring this much needed service to our neighboring communities.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We have a motivated team who will run the day-to-day operations. The truck will be outfitted with multiple washer/dryer sets and will operate for 4 hours a day, 3-5 days a week totaling up to 5,000 loads per year! We need to raise $150,000 to make it happen and cover operations for a year.
