JACKSONVILLE, FL, March 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Volunteers will donate their time and money to Current of Tampa Bay, Inc. to help wash the clothes of those less fortunate this weekend. The group will be providing these services as a part of the Laundry Project, a Current of Tampa Bay volunteer program. The project will be held on Saturday, March 16 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Sue's Coin Laundry at 4071 College Street, Jacksonville, FL 32205.
This is the fourth time Current will hold a Laundry Project in the Jacksonville area. As residents' needs are growing for this service, Current is stepping up to meet the demand. Volunteers are from the Jacksonville area, and together with Current's president they hope to raise $700 for supplies.
"Jacksonville projects have a special place in my heart," said Current's Founder and President Jason Sowell. "I lived in Jacksonville while I studied in college. It is such a great city with a lot of need that often goes unnoticed. I know our efforts along with those of dedicated volunteers will make a difference in people's lives."
The Laundry Project is still in need of $400 to reach its fundraising goal for Saturday's project. Donations of quarters (rolls of $10), coloring books, crayons, laundry baskets and bags, bleach, fabric softener and liquid laundry detergent are always appreciated. Donations can be brought to the event on the morning of Saturday, March 16 or be made by contacting Jason Sowell at 727.537.9082. More information about this event can be found online at http://www.LaundryByCurrent.org.
