An excerpt from LA Watts Times
Clean clothes, a refreshing shower and a hot meal are a few things that many of us take for granted. On Thursday, September 20, Assemblymember Mike A. Gipson organized ‘Laundry of Love’ a Day of Homeless Service in Watts.
Mr. and Mrs. Martel Loving, proprietors of Just For You Laundry at 10723 Compton Ave. in Watts opened their doors to homeless individuals and families to allow them the complimentary use of washers and dryers.
As attendees waited for their clothes to dry, they were invited to walk a very short distance to Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, 10905 Compton Ave. for delicious meals; showers; vaccination; dental kits; HIV testing; Hepatitis vaccines; feminine supplies; music and a wide array of resources.
