Surprise Washer & Dryer

After years of struggling with not having money to buy new washer and dryers, we got new ones only for our dryer to give out. Our dryer stopped working a few years ago. The washer stopped working, but we managed to get it to work. Meanwhile, my partner and our 6 year old takes our family’s laundry to local laundry mats and spend on average 6 hours each Sunday to do it.

We were finally able to buy new a washer and dryer yesterday and I posted our old working washer on our neighborhood Buy Nothing. While I will give it away to the first person that wanted it, a second person shared their family can really use the washer. He’s actually my partner’s former student, he has a partner and they have 3 young children. He shared he got furloughed and times have been hard and laundry has been challenging at best - something our family know all too well.

I’m trying to help others as I was able to help my family buy much needed appliances, I’m wondering if any of you can help contribute something, anything to help this family out. It would fill my bucket to be able to surprise him with a washer and dryer for his family. I will donate $100 to start. Please share and consider giving what you can, thank you.
