Laundry is one of the more tiring, seemingly never-ending tasks for families under routine conditions, and it can be even more difficult when your home is flooded, you have no electricity and water is in short supply.

The folks at Tide know that, and their Tide Loads of Hope mobile Laundromat set up shop yesterday in Donelson (2403 Lebanon Pike in the Dollar General parking lot) to help Nashville area flood victims with that troubling task.

The massive fleet includes 32 energy-efficient washers and dryers that are capable of cleaning more than 300 loads of laundry per day.

Storm-ravaged families can bring two loads of clothing per person per day. Tide workers will wash, dry and fold clothes free of charge. The service is for clothing only. No linens, jackets or large items will be washed.

Loads of Hope is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and planned to be in the Nashville area until Wednesday, May 19.

The folks from First Baptist, Sevierville, TN have set up a mobile laundry and shower service behind Harpeth Heights Baptist, 8063 Hwy 100, Nashville, in the Bellevue area, across from the new Publix. This service is being terribly under-utilized; ladies are there wanting to work and they have no laundry to do!
