laundry for all - washhero COVID-19 fund


Hello from our teams at washbnb and washhero, 

Though our business was originally founded on serving short-term rental hosts with their laundry and linen problems, we’ve watched as the COVID-19 pandemic has completely changed the employment market and the needs of our community. In order to better serve the immediate needs of those around us, we saw a huge need for a personal wash+fold laundry delivery service accessible to everyone in the community, especially those most in need like seniors and families without washing machines in their homes.

While we are offering a paid service to cover our costs and pay employees fairly, we know that not everyone who needs laundry services at this time can afford it. That’s why we’re asking community members like you to rally. With your financial support, we’ll be able to offer a subsidized or no-cost service to low-income, elderly, immunocompromised or otherwise high risk individuals and families who can’t safely leave their homes during the COVID-19 shutdown. Nobody should have to risk their health to get clean clothes, or sleep in dirty sheets indefinitely to keep themselves and others safe. Please donate today to help us provide jobs, comfort and safety during this crisis!

We promise to keep separate accounting for all donated funds and to only use donated funds to subsidize laundry service for orders that come in through our "Can't Afford Our Service" order collection system. 100% of funds will go towards the costs associated with processing those orders (labor, detergent, washer/dryer use, delivery).

Note: that we laundry services have been deemed essential by the City of Milwaukee  and we are in close contact with city government leaders and exceeding Centers for Disease Control & Prevention guidelines for laundry and surface disinfection. 

Thank you for your support!

Daniel Cruz, Cat Simpson, & Brian Mandelin
