Our Partners....

Laundry Love Rockford exists because of the faith of its volunteers and supporters.  Without the generosity of local congregations (representing at least 4 denominations) our work could not go on.

Our program coordinators Bob and Dave consider it a privilege to visit and worship with our partners and wanted to share a few photos from the houses of worship they have recently been privileged to be invited to.

Program Requirements

The Laundry Love Program provides free laundry services to the needy on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at Charles Street Laundromat (2125 Charles St.).  Clean laundry is one of our most basic needs.  Unwashed clothes and bedding can harbor diseases or parasites.  Children attending school without clean clothes are often teased or stigmatized.  Laundry Love exists to help alleviate the strain that poor health and hygiene places on the most vulnerable members of our community. 

Q: Who can bring laundry to wash?
A: The program is open to anyone who can demonstrate need by presenting their LINK Card or Medicaid Card and another form of ID.  Individuals who present as homeless can do laundry on their 1st visit but will need to present a referral from a social service agency or other information on subsequent visits.  Local pastors and social service agencies may contact one of the program coordinators to provide referrals for people with special circumstances or who lack documentation.

Q: When is laundry night?
A: Laundry night is the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 6pm to 8pm.  Registration starts at 5:30pm.  Due to time restrictions and the capacity of the laundromat we are able to accept the first 24 clients or until 7pm (whichever comes first).

Q: Where is Laundry Love?
A: Laundry nights are held at Charles Street Laundromat (2125 Charles St.). The laundromat is easily accessible by public transportation on the RMTD Charles St. #12 route. 



Q: How much laundry can they do?
A: 3 medium-sized loads (approximately 18lbs. each) for an individual or 5 medium-sized loads for a family.  (Example: A large laundry basket, mounded full is usually 2 loads.) Detergent and supplies are provided.
