Act of Kindness “Laundry Love”

Laundry Love is a mission of Two Trees Church here in Ventura. Chris Black, our third Sunday worship pastor, and our resident Barbara Morris are members. The second Saturday of the month, several of our residents volunteer their time to help the homeless and low-income by washing and drying their clothes at no cost to them.

Many bingo players and others here have donated generously to this endeavor and the church is very thankful for this help. Quarters, and any currency, is accepted. Last month our Townehouse residents donated $450. While Maxine and Faye checked everyone in, Lynn handed out soap and quarters!

For information, or to donate, please see Barbara. The need is great for those less fortunate than us.
