We’ll Wash Your Clothes
September 29, 2008

 It’s one of the neatest and nicest services that 2 on the Beat saw on Galveston Island Monday.

Tide Detergent has set up a FREE drop off and pick up service for residents who want their clothes washed.

It’s called “Loads of Hope”  and it is set up across from the seawall.

Sure, its good publicity for the company, but it also seems like a nice gesture toward those who have endured so much as a result of Hurricane Ike.


Employees accept the bags of jeans, t-shirts (and probably some unmentionables) and then sort, wash and fold them for the residents.

Obviously, most people don’t have electricity or water pressure at home, but everyone needs clean clothes to put on everyday.
