A free laundry night was recently held at the Newton Laundromat, which impacted 15 people. This event would not have been possible without the generous donations of local businesses. Domino’s provided pizza for the folks attending as well as the volunteers. Hy-Vee donated laundry detergent, dryer sheets and stain spray. AmericInn and Best Western donated soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion, which were part of the personal hygiene bags that were given to those who attended. The kits also included toothbrushes, and toothpaste, which were donated by Dr. Robert Kuhn Dentistry, and also Associated Dentists. A sincere thank you to them all.
Thank you also to the people and churches in our community who donated money, laundry supplies, clothing, blankets and food.
A second free large laundry night has already been scheduled, which will hopefully impact even more people.
