One-Stop Non-Profit Adds A Laundry Room To Their Services For Those In Need
Gap Ministries opened a new laundry mat just yesterday, December 5, for those in need of washing their belongings. The laundry mat is equipped with washers, dryers, and cleaning supplies.
Naomi Stanton is the Executive Director of Gap Ministries, and she saw a need for this in more than those who are just homeless. This even goes further than being homeless – some people are in homes but don’t have the luxury of washing their clothes or don’t even have electricity.
Kamo, Trinity on the Hill, and Dave’s appliances are just a few of the organizations within the community that help bring this to life. This is taking care of a basic need – clean clothes
Laundry Room Hours
- Monday 9 am – 11:30 am
- Tuesday 12 pm – 2 pm
- Wednesday 9am – 11:30am
Gap Ministries is a volunteer service organization that strives to “fill the gap” between plenty and need.
Gap Ministries also provides several other resources to the community. Their services typically fall on Thursday mornings. It’s like a one-stop shop! They are open from 8:30 -12:00 each Thursday, except for Thanksgiving, the Thursday between Christmas and New Year’s, and the Thursday of Master’s week. Here are a few of things they offer.
Birth Certificates are a needed document within life and some people do not have access to one. At Gap Ministries, they will help personnel fill out the needed paperwork and pay the fees for those born in the United States, or as American citizens overseas.
Medication can be a necessity for many, but people may not have a way to get the medication they need. GAP nurses assist those who have no other way to pay for their prescriptions. They also are equipped to give out over-the-counter medications as needed.
Babies need diapers. They even assist with that. Diapers sized 1-5 are sold for $1.00 and they give up to one week’s supply to eligible parents or caregivers.
OTHER THURSDAY MORNING SERVICES:
—Free Cell Phones for qualifying persons
—Counseling on Health Insurance and Medicaid for qualifying persons
—Ryan White Van for HIV Testing on the 2nd Thursday
—GA Dept. of Health information on Breast and Cervical Cancer on the 4th Thursday
