    Laundry Love Citrus Heights

    We financially support this outreach in Citrus Heights that covers the cost of laundry for people who are struggling financially.  For those living in poverty, washing clothes presents both a logistical problem and a financial hardship.  LLCH washes laundry on the second Saturday of each month from 8am to 11am at Paradise Coin Wash on Greenback Lane. Guests, on average, save over $20 per visit.  They can apply their savings toward food, fuel, medicines and other essentials instead.  Refer those you know that could benefit from this ministry to this local outreach.
