CLEVELAND — Every day, if you look close enough, you can spot people helping out their neighbors, paying it forward with random acts of kindness. Sometimes that kindness can be as simple as paying for a load of laundry—and that’s what some members of a Cleveland church did on Saturday.

Members of East Mount Zion Baptist Church in Cleveland held an event called “Love at the Laundromat” at the Sno-Brite Laundromat on Euclid Avenue, paying for members of the community’s laundry services.

"We just want to reach out, especially in times like this, to help. It might not seem like a lot, but every little bit counts so we just wanted to come out and share with them and to encourage them during this time," said Pamela Onunwor, President of the Women's Auxiliary of East Mount Zion Baptist Church.

Organizers at the church said they plan to hold another event soon and hope to help even more people.

In order to expand the cause, the church is accepting donations. To contact the church and learn more about the event, click here.
