Pop-Up Neighbor

The Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading (SCGLR) and The Laundry Project teamed up to hold Pop Up Neighbor events at SuperMatt Laundromat/Lavandería locations. Pop Up Neighbor events are unexpected opportunities where volunteers make real connections with the community while alleviating the cost of laundry. For three hours, everyone who walks into the laundromat gets their laundry fees paid, thanks to the generosity of The Patterson Foundation.

Since 2018, albeit interrupted by COVD, SCGLR has hosted 32 Pop-Up Neighbor Through Laundry events providing 1,477 families with 15,422 loads of laundry—that’s a lot of suds!

With appreciation for each volunteerCurrent Initiatives, SCGLR’s lead partners, participating businesses, nonprofits, government agencies, and the media, communities are strengthened through caring. Together, we’ve connected with hundreds of families and completed thousands of loads of laundry.
