How Loopie is Supporting Seattle’s Shelters During COVID-19

At the height of the pandemic, Loopie decided to step up to help shelters in Seattle, one of which was the Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC).

Even as the world returns to normal, many people and organizations are still working to support those affected by COVID-19. At the height of the pandemic, Loopie decided to step up to help shelters in Seattle. Loopie’s service was mentioned by the Seattle Times as one of the businesses that remained open during the ‘Stay Home, Stay Healthy’ order to provide essential services to shelters, helping them better focus on the needs of their residents. We have been working closely with the Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC) and various other shelters in the city to help those in Seattle when they need it most.


Giving Back to Seattle’s Shelters

When the COVID pandemic hit, many people were left scrambling, and many people and organizations stepped up for their community. Loopie, too, decided to partner with local shelters to provide our laundry services. This was a much-needed service, as the shelters were inundated with people who had no way to do their laundry or only had access to a few machines. The Loopie team worked long hours to ensure that the laundry was picked up, washed, dried, and returned within 24 hours, removing an extra burden from the shoulders of shelter staff.


The first shelter Loopie started helping was DESC, located directly in the city, and this relationship began when their dryer malfunctioned. From this, they were able to build a strong contact at DESC and were connected with other shelters in Seattle. Loopie offered its commercial services at a discount to these shelters. Allowing Loopie to assist better Seattle and those most affected by the pandemic. By providing laundry services, Loopie makes it easier for those affected by the pandemic, homelessness, or just daily life to keep their clothes clean and hopefully boost morale.
