We will begin serving our community once again with our open laundry night on Wednesday September 16th.
Please note our new location at A1 Laundry and Dry Cleaning at 1304 Brooke Road in Rockford also known as Brooke Road Laundromat.
We gather at the laundromat and begin registration at 5:30pm on each open laundry night. It is NOT necessary to make an appointment or pre-register. Laundry is done at no charge and on a first-come, first-served basis. We are able to serve the first 24 families or individuals who register. We provide detergent and fabric softener sheets or you are free to bring your own. Our load-limits have not changed: 3 loads for an individual, 5 loads for a family.
During the COVID-19 pandemic we are operating under special guidelines please make note of them below:
- Masks or face coverings that cover the nose and mouth are required at all time when inside the laundromat or waiting in line.
- We will take your temperature at the time you register. If it registers over 100 degrees we will not be able to serve you and you must leave the premises.
- You will have to provide a phone number for contact-tracing purposes at registration.
- If you feel ill or have a cough, please stay home and we will be happy to take care of you when you feel better
- To avoid overcrowding the laundromat please limit it to one or two people per family when coming to open laundry night.
- We will have hand sanitizer and there is a sink for hand-washing, please us them often!
- After starting your laundry you will have to wait outside or at your vehicle while it washes/dries. A volunteer will let you know when it is done. If we cannot locate you we will move it for you.
