BILLINGS- Clean clothes are something that can be overlooked when helping those in need.

The Junior League of Billings helped people with their laundry at B.Y.O. Laundry on Saturday.

The group’s laundry program has been in the works for three years now.

The Junior League pays for using the washing machines and dryers and for detergent and other supplies.

The program helps the homeless, families and those who need just a little extra help.

“They find a charity and I think this is great,” said Dre Webster.

“Laundry is an expense that a lot of people don’t think about,” said Brianne Klein, who along with her husband, owns B.Y.O. Laundry. “We think about our house. We think about our food. But we have to have clean clothes, clean sheets, clean towels. It’s really amazing. I’m so glad they reached out to us.”

“Doing just a little laundry can really add up,” said Emily Hoskins, Junior League Community Council Chair. “And people are always so thankful. So it’s great to know we are helping those that, helping people that really need it.  Every time we do, they’ve been super appreciative, so it’s wonderful.”

The Junior League will hold another laundry day at B.Y.O. Laundry at 46 Broadwater Avenue, on March 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
