SHOP WITH A PURPOSE
With the LA Fashion District situated alongside the community of Skid Row, our mission to serve the homeless became clear. In October 2017, we launched The Laundry Truck LA, a 501c3 non-profit charity, which funds a free mobile laundry service for those in need. Accessible personal care services and clean laundry truly impact lives, and can make the difference in securing employment or housing. Our goal is to build awareness for this cause and come together to bring this much needed service to our neighboring communities. Every purchase made on shopdolan.com contributes to The Laundry Truck LA. GOOD On You!
The Laundry Truck LA is funded three ways:
DOLANhandmade is a workshop series that we host in our LA creative space, featuring artist-in-residence, Mimi Haddon. Supporting local artistry & creative makers is a big part of our story, and exploration through craft is one of the ways we stay inspired. We love building our creative community and sharing in the process of learning beautiful craft techniques at each workshop.
We are constantly looking for ways to make a positive impact. We love the idea of re-purposing all materials and believe if we can create art with it - even better! We have incredible art installations made with our re-purposed fabric in our home office as well as around LA. Each order is packaged in gift totes made uniquely special with techniques taught in this series.
