About the LaundryCares Foundation
Millions of people across the country - many in underserved communities - visit laundromats each week to fulfill the basic need of having clean clothes. The Coin Laundry Association and its members established the LaundryCares Foundation in 2006 as a means of focusing the industry's support to these communities through its network of laundry owners and their facilities. LaundryCares functions as a charitable foundation (501c-3) which is administered by CLA.
In addition to the organization's flagship events, Free Laundry Days, which have helped thousands across the nation with complimentary laundry services, the LaundryCares Foundation also teams with other organizations such as Too Small to Fail to deliver educational programs promoting children's literacy and family interactions at the laundromat.
The mission of LaundryCares Foundation is to enrich the communities of our members through programming that addresses unmet needs of laundry customers.
