    SULPHUR SPRINGS, FL, March 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Student Missionaries from The University of Iowa will donate their time to Current of Tampa Bay, Inc. this weekend. They, along with Common Ground Christian Church of Seminole Heights will wash the clothes of those less fortunate. 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 Sunday, March 17 from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m. at Big Wash Coin Laundry at 908 E. Waters Ave., Tampa, FL 33604.

This is the first time Current will partner with University of Iowa students, but the second time Current has joined with Common Ground Christian Church to hold a Laundry Project in the Tampa area. Common Ground is sponsoring the project and together with Current they have raised $400. Current's goal it to raise $700 by Sunday.

"We are very excited to introduce University of Iowa students to the Laundry Project," said Current's Founder and President Jason Sowell. "It is wonderful to partner again with Common Ground, as they are a great group of compassionate people. Sulphur Springs is a special location for Laundry Projects to continue to thrive because it is the very place that the project was originated in. It is always a blessing to help families in that community."

University of Iowa students are hosting a mission trip as part of their spring break; choosing Tampa as their city of service. The students are part of a mission group that meets regularly to give back through community volunteer efforts. Current's Laundry Project has seen an influx of volunteers in the last few years, as they continue to offer support to the project and its mission. Last year the Laundry Project offered free laundry services at one Laundromat; this year due to an outpouring of support, they have expanded to four neighboring locations.

The Laundry Project is still in need of $300 to reach its fundraising goal for Sunday'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 Sunday, March 17 or be made by contacting contact Jason Sowell at 727.537.9082.
