Comments From Our “Lighten Your Load” Guests


“To whomever reads this I am a firm believer in the Pay it Forward concept. And what these folks do for people (including my husband and I) brought tears to my eyes and warmth to my heart. Amazing people. Thank you so much. God Bless!” - Jen and Jim

“(PS) We haven’t had any clean clothes in months. I did all our laundry by hand in my bathtub twice.”


“God has worked in wonderful ways in my life. When I feel stuck he always helps me find my way. And without having water for 9 months Lighten Your Load has blessed our family and definitely lightened our load. Thank you very much. Greatly appreciate it. Thank you God Bless” - Jasmine


“I am very thankful I got to meet yall today and I think what yall are doing for people with the “Lighten Your Load” program is and is appreciated by many people like me that are homeless and don’t really have funds to do laundry. So thank you again. Much appreciated. “ - Anna


“You don’t know how hard life can be when you lose your ability to buy essentials and keep your laundry clean!!! What a blessing to have this service and friendly people to talk to and help out when you need a hand to get your laundry in and out. God Bless!”


“Thank you for providing this awesome service. I am low income household and this helps so much. We do have a wash machine but it’s on its way out and only washes half a load at a time. The people here are so nice and always go out of their way to help us. Thank you!”
