Washin Coin Laundry Presents Check to 2nd Chance Inc
2nd Chance Inc , a local non-profit supporting victims of domestic and sexual abuse, receives a donation from Washin Laundry's "Washin For A Cause" program.
By: K-Bar Inc
Susan Shipman accepted the check on behalf of 2nd Chance Inc, a local Non-Profit that provides support for the victims of domestic and sexual abuse. "These funds are considered non-allocated"
Ken Barrett, President of Washin Lenlock Coin Laundry, presented the check on behalf of the five Anniston and Oxford locations involved in the program.
"Washin Laundry and 2nd Chance have worked together for many years", Barrett explained, " it started during a conversation at a Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce event where we offered any help we could provide to 2nd Chance after hearing about the services they provide in the area. From the first request to take a look at a "small leak" they had on a washer, which turned into a complete reinstall of a commercial washer at one of their facilities, to providing tokens for use at most of the Washin Locations by anyone they feel needs support."
"This check is the first of our Washin For A Cause / Dryin For A Cause program" Barrett continued," where we allocate 25% of the gross proceeds of a Washer and Dryer at each of our 5 locations to a local non-profit each quarter. It lets us, and our customers, support the community while they do something they have to do anyway, their laundry."
"So if you have that comforter or other items that you need to wash, or just catch up with the pile of laundry, look for the Blue and Red Logos on the designated Washer and Dryer and help us make a difference in our community".
