The Rogersville Laundry Ministry (RLM) turns three years old August 11th

The Ministry continues to grow at a rapid rate and volunteers and donations are in great need. There is no way we could have provided this Ministry without all of the wonderful people that donate money, provide laundry detergent and the like, drop quarters in the Rogersville Laundry Ministry PODS containers, as well as various organizations that have contributed. And obviously without all of our volunteers and local Churches pitching in the ministry could not continue to function and serve people like we have. Currently, our biggest need is for more volunteers to help us staff on the nights we currently offer the ministry. Newhouse invites anyone who wants to help out to give her a call. “We can always use volunteers to help us provide needed services on the night of the event”. Dawnel Newhouse can be reached at 937-661-5706 or via email at
