Our Daily Bread was awarded an OK Community Cares Grant.

OK Community Cares awarded Our Daily Bread with a $1,200 grant to provide laundry vouchers to low-income guests.

“We are incredibly appreciative of Oklahoma Community Credit Union and the OK Community Cares grant we received for laundry vouchers,” said Rachael Condley, Our Daily Bread Executive Director. “We have had a huge influx of requests for this program, and the amount we budgeted for the year was going quickly.”

Our Daily Bread began the laundry voucher program in 2022 and with the rising cost of laundromat usage, the program continues to grow. In 2023, 49 vouchers were provided to 16 households to use at the Spin City laundromat in Stillwater. With the help of this grant, Our Daily Bread will be able to provide 88 vouchers to families in need this year.

“With the help of this grant, we can make the program stretch to almost double what we had originally planned,” said Condley. “Until we can get a more sustainable laundry resource in town, this collaboration will help our friends and neighbors in need to have clean clothes and bedding when they don’t have another way to access this necessity.”
