Churches help the homeless through Laundry Aloha

From Hawaii (with video)-

That jingle in our pockets and weight in our wallets is enough for some to be life-changing. A handful of Hawaii churches are showing how a small roll of quarters can make a big difference. It's called Laundry Aloha.

Gathered in a small room behind the pews, a big-hearted operation to get little packets of kindness to families in need.

"We're talking about hundreds and hundreds of loads of laundry and hundreds and hundreds of families served hopefully," said Father David Gierlach of St. Elizabeth Episcopal Church.

St. Elizabeth Episcopal Church in Kalihi is one of nine parishes that won a $10,000 grant, then matched with another $10,000. Their chosen mission: coins and detergent to help the houseless get clean.
