Beginning June 1, 2010, The River will be extending its hours of operations to accommodate the demand for our services. In the past we were open from 9 am to 3 pm, NOW WE WILL BE OPEN ONE HOUR EARLIER from 8 am to 3 pm. Most morning there are 3-12 women waiting in line to start washing their clothes. Some women come as early as 6:30 am to start the line. It is our hope that this additional hour can allow two more women the opportunity to wash clothes, help women who work 9-5 to take a shower before heading off to work, provide a place for women staying at The Salvation Army who must leave at 8 am, and cut down on the number of women waiting outside for The River to open. Laundry must still be started by 1 pm and no more showers taken after 2:30 pm.
