Great news! A great opportunity to help us meet a matching gift to purchase needed commercial laundry equipment!
Our laundry equipment at Trinity Rescue Mission is over 20 years old and has surpassed its useful life. But during those 20 years the two commercial washers and dryers were used to help thousands of people!
Each week Trinity Rescue Mission provides laundry service to over 200 people which includes persons in our programs and overnight guests. This laundry service makes it possible for our children to have clean clothes to wear to school. The machines also make it possible for adults interviewing and working jobs to wear presentable, clean clothing. Additionally, TRM’s hospitality operations requires heavy duty laundry equipment to wash and dry kitchen linens, blankets, bedding, etc. In the winter time, our laundry loads get even larger due to jackets, coats and heavier winter apparel.
To do loads of laundry like we do at Trinity Rescue Mission, heavy duty commercial laundry equipment is required. Commercial laundry equipment costs much more than domestic equipment—in fact, the cost of two new commercial washers and dryers is $20,000!
But here is some great news! We have a donor that has already given $10,000 towards the purchase of new machines and has asked other donors to step up and match the gift to meet the remaining amount. That means we now only need an additional $10,000 to purchase the equipment we need. Would you consider a gift today to help us reach that goal?
If you help, please designate your donation for “commercial laundry” on your check or in the comments for an online donation. We will send an announcement once we meet this goal! We appreciate your consideration and hope you will give what you can today!
