Belleville offers free laundry services this month for those in need

The city of Belleville’s General and Community Assistance Office will host two Suds of Love events in the month of February.

The east end Suds of Love is scheduled for Feb. 18 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Belleville East Laundromat, 1008 Carlyle Ave. The west end Suds of Love is scheduled for Feb. 26 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Best Wash Laundromat, 6323 W. Main St.

This event is free to individuals or families who need assistance accessing laundry services. Participants are eligible to use up to two standard capacity machines per family or individual or one high capacity machine at no cost to them. Detergent and fabric softener are available if needed, or participants can bring their own.

“We launched our first Suds of Love event in December, and it was very helpful for people who might not have the resources to regularly launder their clothing,” said Leander Spearman, interim director of Community Development. “But we couldn’t host this without the support of our other great community organizations and donors who make this possible.”

Spearman said that this event is made possible by a partnership between the General and Community Assistance Office, Beacon Ministry, and the Community Development Network.

For more information to learn how you can contribute to this event, contact the General and Community Assistance Office at (618) 212-4379. Visit www.belleville.net.
