DALLAS — On Monday, the LaundryCares Foundation will host a Free Laundry Day event here from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at DD Wash-N-Dry Laundromat.
In addition to free laundry services and detergent, this Free Laundry Day will include free food and activities for children and adults to enjoy. Laundry owners, distributors, manufacturer employees and local community members are expected to be present and volunteer their help to operate the event.
Guests can bring an unlimited amount of laundry to the event and will receive free laundry products to help clean their clothes.
While the guests do their laundry, children will be safely entertained with several supervised enrichment activities including reading, storytelling, and more. Free children’s books will be distributed to the families present at the event.
A new Family Read, Play & Learn Space will be installed in the laundry. These literacy spaces provide books plus a comfortable and engaging setting designed to foster opportunities for children to read and learn while their families’ clothes and linens are laundered.
Similar learning spaces have been launched in Laundromats across the nation through the Laundry Literacy Coalition, a partnership of Too Small to Fail and the LaundryCares Foundation.
“This is an amazing opportunity for this Laundromat and the Dallas community to experience the excitement and goodwill of a Free Laundry Day plus the transformational potential of our Family Read, Play & Learn Space,” says Dan Naumann, executive vice president of the LaundryCares Foundation.
