Social Spin is more than a laundromat.
It is a place where I see community, purpose and dignity being lived out. It is described as a “purpose driven laundromat” and designed to serve as much more than a place to wash laundry. Social Spin is partnering with local businesses, nonprofits and local government agencies to ensure that the basic elements of human dignity are provided to everyone. Being clean allows people to be among other people. The stigma of body odors, being unsheltered, and people with disabilities seen or unseen are often shunned when they are at their most vulnerable.
Social Spin’s mission is to build dignity and respect in underserved neighborhoods.
Christy Moore, Social Spins Founder and Owner has a background in Social Work and as a community oriented leader sees laundromats as an inherent social hub. True to their motto, Connecting Communities, Providing Fresh Starts, Social Spin has successfully implemented its community-based business plan at its first location in Phoenix and a second location in Mesa.
Over the next few weeks I would like to take you on a journey of what Social Spin has been up to and the dynamic people behind its growing success, the projects that have brought them to where they are now and what is coming up. Let me tell you, you don’t want to miss it!
