Last night the Waterbury Laundromat was chock full. There was not a machine that wasn’t spinning or tumbling or churning. About half of those were guests invited there by our Laundry Love initiative. Deb Utton and I were pleased with how smooth it ran and are looking forward to inviting the rest of you to partake.
Right now, we are running this on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month. They bring their laundry to the laundromat and load the appropriate machine. We take their name and make sure that if they are using the free detergent that they are not allergic to it. Then we put the detergent and the quarters in the machine and sit back while the machines do their thing. Some of the guests like to chat, others will leave. Bring a book in case. Eventually, we envision that 2 volunteers would be at the laundromat at 5pm and that one would leave at 6pm and the other remain until 7:00pm, the latest point at which the last load can go in.
We’re off and running!
