SANTA CRUZ COUNTY, Calif. (KION) Victims of the CZU Lightning Complex Fires can still do laundry with the help of Community Bridges.
The organization is running a mobile laundry trailer for fire victims, and this week it is in Felton. Soap is provided to people who were evacuated and are still without water.
The organization said there are a couple thousand people who are in need of the services, and the idea to run a mobile laundry trailer came from talking to evacuees.
"When you have bad smoke damage, it's terrible. You need to wash your stuff a bunch of times, and it can get expensive doing that at a laundromat. That's when we came up with the idea," said Roxanne Moore with Community Bridges.
The trailer is expected to move to Bonny Doon Elementary next week and Boulder Creek the following week.
