ABILENE - Employees of Memorial Health System (MHS) recently wore blue jeans at work for a Jeans Day fundraiser.

Employees who made a donation of at least $5 were allowed to wear blue jeans on the last Friday of May. A total donation of $160 was presented to Laundry Love of Abilene.

The Laundry Love initiative consists of regular opportunities to come alongside people who are struggling financially by assisting them with their laundry.  Laundry Love of Abilene is a local program directed by Holly Walker in partnership with The Cedar House in Abilene. Laundry Love fosters community participation within a neighborhood through the many layers of connection it inspires. Laundry Love partners with groups, and local laundromats, in cleaning clothes and linens of families and individuals.

Every third Thursday, from 6-8 p.m., up to five loads of laundry are free per family. The event is free to anyone with no restrictions. For more information, visit the Laundry Love of Abilene Facebook page at facebook.com/LaundryLove67410.
