In observance of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, AmeriCorps and the Jewish Renaissance Foundation will be holding a laundry donation drive-up on Monday, January 16, 2023, from 9am-12pm at Middlesex College, Perth Amboy Campus, 60 Washington Street, Perth Amboy, NJ 08861 (Please enter on High Street)

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, our families and homeless are struggling to support themselves. They must make impossible decisions each month in terms of their basic needs. One of the lowest priorities on the list is allocating laundry expenses.

The purpose of the drive is to create a fully stocked laundry pantry where our families & homeless individuals, can receive free laundry products along with pre-paid vouchers to wash and dry their clothes at our neighborhood small businesses (laundromats) on designated "Loads of Care" days.

All donations are welcome, we ask that you purchase dye-free products only.
