Description:

The Laundry Shower Ministry

 

This project is an ongoing ministry that serves the Fullerton homeless community twice a month. This ministry has been in operation for over 3 years. We provide laundry services, showers, a full lunch, donated items, resource referrals, and (most important!) friendship for our homeless guests. We typically serve between 30-50 guests each time, the majority of which are men.

This ministry occurs in the parking lot of the First United Methodist Church, located on the corner of Pomona Ave. and E. Amerige Ave.  Parking is available in the church parking lot.

Volunteers serve lunch, hand out hygiene items and donated clothing, wash our guests’ clothes at a local laundromat, keep the showers running and clean, and engage in conversations with our homeless friends. Our guests love to meet and talk with new people!

Volunteers should arrive by 12:30pm. Laundry-shower services begin at 1:00, and we serve lunch at 1:30. We are usually done by 4:00pm, but feel free to leave whenever you need.

We would appreciate if the Love Fullerton volunteers could bring something to share with our homeless guests. Suggestions are: travel size hygiene items, new or gently used clothing and shoes, and individually wrapped snacks.
