During the COVID-19 pandemic, pastor Leo Robinson spent a lot of time meeting the needs of the community and has found a his people are in need of laundry service.
“We started doing food because everybody during COVID was relying on the schools for food. So we started going into these areas to offer dinner and they were like, ‘Food is great, but we really need a place to do our laundry,” Robinson told Flint Beat.
“There’s no laundromat in a four-mile radius. Over 75 percent of our people in this area depend on public transportation, so you can only imagine taking all of your clothes, getting on the MTA to go to the laundromat to sit for three or four hours to do your laundry, and then come back on that bus route. That’s taking up most of your day.”
