Volunteers from All Saints church do laundry for needy

From Hawaii-

When trying to find a way to help the community, the Rev. Ryan Newman of All Saints Episcopal Church wanted to be different.

“While other charitable groups primarily focus on food, we thought we would help out in a different way,” Newman said. “And who doesn’t deserve a shower and clean clothes?”

With that question in mind, church volunteers started helping less-fortunate Kauai residents do their laundry. And last month marked two years of Laundry Love Kauai.

The group meets on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Kapaa Laundromat, where they complete around 90 loads of laundry.

David Murray, originally from Washington, D.C., has been volunteering since the program began.
