Mobile Laundry Truck Comes To Fort Collins/Northern Colorado
At the June 26th Quota dinner meeting, Judy Warren (QIFC Allocations) and Shannon Richardson, (QIFC President) presented a check for $5,000.00 to Woody Carlson and Pat Friehauf, in support of the Northern Colorado Laundry Truck.
After retiring, Woody Carlson saw a story about a mobile laundry truck based in Denver. Carlson traveled to Denver and after seeing the operation, he decided to bring one to Northern Colorado.
The truck will be outfitted with washers and dryers and will travel to various locations near schools where families, experiencing poverty or homelessness, can discretely utilize this service. Parents will be able to drop off their laundry and pick it up at the end of the day; washed, dried and folded by volunteers.
Woody and Pat told the members that statistics show that clean clothes can help children, experiencing poverty or homelessness, to be more confident and perform better in school. It also betters the opportunity for parents to obtain employment.
