WHITESBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - Free laundry services are being offered to people impacted by historic flooding last week.

Matthew 25: Ministries is partnering with P&G to provide personal care products, cleaning supplies, first aid and safety supplies, baby items and more.

The Tide Loads of Hope Mobile Unit is also stationed at the Whitesburg Walmart.

It can wash up to 150 loads per day.

Starting Sunday, people can drop off two bags of clothes per household for free. No heavy bedding will be accepted.

Laura Morand, who is a member of the Disaster Response Team for Matthew 25: Ministries, says they are glad to help people recover.

”There is very widespread devastation, and it’s hard to see people come in so impacted by it. We’re just glad we could come here and provide a little bit help though for them,” she said.

The mobile unit previously made a stop at the Hazard Walmart.

Hours of operation are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or until capacity is met.
