Several local organizations have teamed up to offer free laundry services for Rockford Public School students again this summer!

The Fresh for Learning program is in its fifth year for the Rockford area and its third year at 5 Alarm Coin Laundry. The program is offered thanks to a partnership with Molina Healthcare of Illinois and the Rockford Police Department.

Parents can bring in their RPS205 student with a school ID or ID number, to wash their clothes on Wednesdays from 4 pm – 6 pm at either 5 Alarm Coin Laundry, located at 3939 West Riverside Blvd. and 3110 S. Alpine Rd. in Rockford. Students are able to wash and dry two loads of laundry each week. Laundry detergent, bleach, and dryer sheets are provided at no cost. Students must be present to participate. This is a great opportunity for kids to develop their independence by learning how to do their own laundry!

If you’d like to help support this program, donations of laundry detergent are always welcome. You can drop them off at 5 Alarm Coin Laundry.
