In October, Isthmus reported on a new program, Project Bubbles, to help homeless people get their laundry done (see Madison.gov, 10/20/2011).
The program provided bus fare to a self-service laundry on Sherman Avenue, as well as laundry tokens to use the machine. But the laundry has ended its involvement with the program, starting Dec. 29.
Beginning Jan. 2, the service will be available at Affiliated Laundries Inc., 701 E. Johnson St., on Mondays from noon to 4 p.m. Volunteers will be onsite to help people do their laundry.
Bus tokens will not generally be given out for the service at this location, because it is more centrally located, according to Donna Asif, of the Madison Homelessness Initiative.
The group hopes to expand the days and hours of operation for this service.
