St. Clare’s Guild would like to thank the Cathedral community for its overwhelming generosity during the detergent drive in April. We collected more than 2,100 laundry “pods” and 400 loads worth of liquid detergent for the women and families at City of Refuge! That’s a lot of laundry! City of Refuge will use our donations to defray laundry costs for the 200 women and children sheltering there. Typically, a single mom and her family receives three or four pods per week for laundry. As they move into the financial independence program there, they must budget for household expenses including laundry. Every dollar not spent on household items goes towards all-important savings for the women when they graduate and go out on their own.
