LOVELAND, Ohio — A national organization is coming to Loveland on Saturday to do one thing, and one thing only: clean some dirty clothes.

The Laundry Project was started by the nonprofit Current Initiatives in March 2020 around Tampa, Florida, to help hospitality workers and low-income families clean their clothes once the pandemic hit. The project has traveled the country, doing about 29,000 loads of laundry along the way.

"(People) are just so thankful," Denise Hough, the director of Current Initiatives Ohio, said. "You hear great stories about, 'I couldn't afford it so it's been stacking up so finally now I can do my laundry,' and they'll ask, 'Can I get more?' Absolutely go get it! We want to help them in any way that we can."

If you want to get your clothes cleaned, the project will be at the Loveland Cleaners at 910 Loveland Madeira Rd. from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
