CARE & OUTREACH
The Care and
Outreach Ministry is an extension of the Deacon's ministry and is
coordinated by them.
Laundry Love is part of a national initiative that "consists of regular opportunities to help people who are struggling financially by assisting them with doing their laundry. (Click on logo to view Laundry Love website.)
For those living below the poverty line, washing clothes presents both a logistical problem and a financial hardship. Laundry Love partners with local laundromats in cleaning the clothes of those living in shelters, motels, cars, garages and on the streets."
The local effort is orchestrated through St. Luke's Episcopal, operating one night each week in the Amagansett laundromat. The laundromat will supply the soap, while Laundry Love supplies the quarters to operate the machines.
On the small table in the Narthex you will find a labeled container for quarters. (All monies are accepted, but quarters are especially helpful.)
