United Way of Greater Kansas City teams up with Faultless and Faultless Healthcare Linen to kick off Giving Tuesday with Loads of Love KC. Loads Of Love KC is aiming to raise $20,000 in order to purchase washers, dryers, laundry soap and other materials for several schools in Raytown and Hickman Mills School Districts. The initiative will allow children to discretely bring dirty clothes to school to be cleaned as well as provide tools to life-skills classrooms.
Relocating and Building New Facility Made Way for the Largest Federal Investment Project in the History of St. Louis
Faultless Healthcare Linen opened its new, state-of-the-art, 83,000-square-foot medical laundry plant today. Located at 154 S. Trudeau, this facility replaces the company’s plant at 1615 N. 25th Street, which opened just six years ago.
If you live/work in St. Louis then you may be aware that that the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), one of St. Louis’ largest employers, announced in 2016 that it was staying in the City of St. Louis and building its new headquarters there. Of course, we were thrilled for the city because of the huge economic benefits it brings! Now you’re probably wondering, what does Faultless have to do with the new NGA building?
When we learned that some students miss school every day in Kansas City because they don’t have access to washer/dryers to launder their clothes, we knew we wanted to do something to help. Last November, we joined forces with United Way of Greater Kansas City and Faultless Starch in the second-ever Loads of Love campaign to make clean laundry more accessible to local students.
The goal of the #LoadsofLoveKC 2017 campaign was to raise funds in hopes of adding washer/dryer facilities to five Kansas City Public Schools.
