"During my devotions one morning, this idea came to me to do so." Stated Van De Cruze. Good Samaritan, Samuel Van De Cruzedecided to split the kindness in his soul, by performing 5,000 lbs of laundry for homeless households. Although Van De Cruze was once a social worker until he newly opened, Mr. Bubbles, located in Queens, New York, it was also the first time that he had given to a charity in this caliber.
For the displaced and the lower income households, doing laundry may be a battle. Some can have difficulty carrying the laundry burden because of diseases, and many others can't afford the luxury of getting clothes as frequently as they'd like. It left them without a alternative except to walk around in uncleaned clothing for days due to those reasons. For nights, Van De Cruze had spent hours drying machine, washing and folding 5,000 lbs of clothes for homeless families staying at The Landing. It is a nonprofit homeless shelter which carry in households with children and is ran by CAMBA. He went the excess mile to pickup and send the laundry loads. Carrying laundry with toddlers can be a chore for both parents and they are especially grateful to Van De Cruze. To be able to save money is a boon. Without the money does place a toll on families, especially when they wind up stressing on every penny that leaves their pockets. A load of laundry cost about $2 for a person. A family of five laundry load may run up to $35, depending on the number of clothes. To much more privilege households, $35 could be a couple of change, but to struggling families, that $35 will signify the planet.
"We needed to save as much money as we can for meals, traveling, diapers and other necessities." Stated Amber, a resident in The Landing, who was washing her clothes in the tub. Her relatives and Amber had been homeless after has been sold. Van De Cruze might not feel like a fanatic but to many, he was a knight in shining armor, giving them hope that humankind still exist. They were more than happy to wear clothing and feeling less. "People need clean clothes to function and to be healthy." Van De Cruze believes in being a good Christian and that by putting out great work and vibes the world just might be a much better location.
