Laundry Love is a new outreach ministry here at Calvary for 2019!
The Laundry Love Initiative began about fifteen years ago in Ventura, California with a mission to
wash the clothes and bedding of individuals and/or families living in poverty. There are now Laundry
Love’s located throughout the United States. You can read more about the initiative at
Laundry Love seeks to bring economic relief by giving the individual or family the option to redirect
funds toward food, medical, gas or transportation costs or other everyday necessities. From the infant
to the aged, and across a broad spectrum of ethnicity, culture and personal story, Laundry Love seeks
to nurture the well being of each person through intentional networking and friendship.
Funding and oversight for the Calvary Laundry Love are through the Outreach Committee. Because
it is a committee, there are no regular helpers for this ministry.
Monthly success will depend on
Calvary ministry groups/individuals who want to support Laundry Love by donating liquid laundry
detergent and dryer sheets, or by hosting Laundry Love for a few hours.
This is a ministry of presence. We do not handle the participant’s laundry; our role is to put the
detergent and quarters in the machines and offer kindness and non-judgement conversation.
The Calvary Laundry Love is held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Collins Road
Washeteria in Richmond.
Please contact Rev. Nancy at email@example.com or 713-818-6323 if you would like to help with this ministry.
We believe that as the people of Calvary Episcopal Church, empowered by the Holy Spirit and the love of Jesus, we seek to embrace all ages in our journey of faith through these Core Values:
