Why laundry?

⁃ A single parent is unable to do their children's laundry because they are living off of one income.
⁃ An elderly individual might not be physically capable of doing his laundry anymore.
⁃ A homeless family can't afford the laundry detergent or the fee for the machine.
⁃ A teenager recently kicked out of his living situation has an interview the next day, but no clean clothes.

Who is Frankie?

Frankie is a young woman that I met while working at a thrift store here in Greenville, SC. She'd come in once a week to buy a new outfit and little did I know, she was buying new clothes in order to throw out the clothes she had on her back. She had no way of washing them. One morning I decided that I was going to do something about this. I went up to her and said, “Hey, my name is Adahlia. I have an idea. What if you pick an outfit out, I'll buy it, and you give me the clothes you are wearing and I will wash them. Then, you can come back tomorrow and get them.” She was nearly in tears because she hadn't had a stranger show that amount of care to her in years. After about 20 minutes of chatting, I learned a majority of her story. She's had one of the hardest lives I've ever heard. I learned that she isn't in any shelter or program, and that she and a few others were living in the woods down the road.

When I met Frankie she was throwing her clothes away and buying a new outfit each week because she didn't have access to wash her clothes. I decided to change that and fulfill a need within our community.
