CMNGD picks up & delivers tens of thousands of linens from restaurants and health & wellness businesses every week.
Then we wash, dry, iron and fold a variety of linens (uniforms, napkins, cloths, towels, etc) everyday at our laundry plant.
We are a for purpose organization; providing on the job training and employment mentoring to people facing poverty barriers.
Originally inspired by a leadership course which required CMNGD (COMMONGOOD) cofounder, Dave, to spend 1 day homeless and beg for $15, this experience forever changed how he and Hannah viewed poverty & homelessness. Then when Dave and Hannah went through the Calgary flood in 2013, they received an outpouring of support to help them rebuild. They committed to giving back to the community even more because every day there are thousands of Calgarians in need of housing & additional support of their own.
