WHAT: Current Initiatives (Current) will wash and dry approximately 250 loads of laundry for free for area residents in need of an emotional boost on Saturday through its Laundry Project program. Organizers expect to clean up roughly a ton machine washable socks, sheets, towels, pants, shirts, blankets and everything else!

Jushi Holdings, Inc. is the partner sponsor with Beyond/Hello volunteers who help with laundry services. This is the second Laundry Project event in Santa Barbara since Current and Jushi teamed up to provide clean laundry to the community.

The Laundry Project gives hope to thousands of people across the country by providing the funds and cleaning supplies needed to wash and dry laundry for anyone in need by creating a caring space at the laundromat.

Since 2008, The Laundry Project has washed more than 219,000 loads of laundry for more than 21,000 families in 840 laundry service projects nationwide. Community contributions are always appreciated and donations of detergent, quarters ($10 rolls), garbage bags, coloring books, crayons, fabric softener and laundry baskets are continually needed.

WHY: Clean laundry is not only an ongoing financial burden for many families, but is also a contributing factor to overall health and well-being. The Laundry Project is committed to doing what it can to bolster its well-being by easing the financial burden of those who are forced to choose between feeding their families or cleaning their clothes.

WHEN: Saturday March 12 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

OR: Wash & Fun Laundromat, 1331 San Andres Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101
