Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer Joins SALT Outreach and Simply Healthcare in celebrating National Laundry Day to Unveil the First Mobile Laundry Service Trailer for Central Florida Homeless
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer will join representatives from SALT (Service and Love Together) and Simply Healthcare on National Laundry Day to cut the ribbon in celebration of SALT’s new first-of-its-kind mobile laundry service trailer serving Central Florida’s homeless.
The laundry trailer, sponsored by the City of Orlando, Simply Healthcare and other private donors, has six commercial washers and dryers and will provide free laundry service to ensure those experiencing homelessness have access to clean clothing. SALT will operate this trailer four days each week and estimates being able to complete up to 240 loads of laundry per week.
This new laundry trailer will be an addition to the services SALT already provides to unsheltered persons experiencing homelessness which includes a portable shower trailer, haircuts, storage services, hygiene products, food and case management services.
This partnership with SALT furthers the city's efforts to address homelessness and ensure that every resident has their basic needs of clothing, food and hygiene met.
