It is intended to implement a Social Laundry in the neighborhood of São Domingos, Setúbal, to use the needy population of the CSPSS, through the acquisition of an industrial washing machine, an industrial dryer and ironing.

The creation of the Neighborhood Laundry will ensure access to cleaning of personal and housing laundry for the target audience of the CSPSS Community Center, who cannot always take care of hygiene due to housing (often without a washing machine) or economic (visa when in the event of a breakdown you cannot purchase new equipment and do not always get donations from individuals or companies to replace them.

At a social price they can leave their clothes to wash and iron, which is an asset for people who, due to physical or mental illness or architectural barriers of housing, are unable to perform these tasks. It will also be an appropriate response to the elderly population living in the CSPSS intervention neighborhoods that no longer have the physical conditions to do so.

It is also envisaged that a self-service machine can be purchased to increase responsiveness for the most autonomous people.

You can donate in two ways: by offering the equipment (industrial washing machine, industrial dryer, ironing machine) directly at the headquarters of the São Sebastião Parish Social Center or through donation on the Crowdfunding PPL platform.
