Showered With Love Unveils State-of-the-art Mobile Hygiene Unit and Plans to Partner with Local Nonprofits

Colorado Springs, CO, August 28, 2018 – Showered With Love, Inc. (SWL) is a new nonprofit, and the first mobile shower program to be launched in Colorado Springs to aid neighbors in need. Wednesday, August 29th from 9am – 3:30pm, the first SWL shower trailer will be parked outside Michelle’s Makery (122 North Tejon St.) offering tours to the public. Media is invited for tours and interviews beginning at 4:00 pm.

 

Founded by local business owner and veteran, Kelly Terrien, the vision of Showered With Love is to provide a sense of dignity and hope to those experiencing homelessness by offering access to a safe toilet and shower facility with clean water, soap, and a towel. The nonprofit is currently partnering with The Salvation Army who will store the unit at their 709 South Sierra Madre Shelter and Services at RJ Montgomery. The two agencies plan to actively collaborate and explore outreach opportunities and partnerships with churches, businesses and other social service providers to operate and provide services via the mobile shower. The unit will also be available to provide mobile hygiene for emergency disaster services if needed.

 

Showered with Love is actively seeking sponsorships and donations in support of its current fundraising goal of $150,000. Funds will support operations of the current three unit trailer, and go to purchase a second eight unit trailer that will allow SWL to provide services on a full time basis.

NOTE: A ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony will be held with city officials Thursday, August 30th 12:30pm – 1:30pm at The Salvation Army Shelter and Services at 709 South Sierra Madre – Media invited to attend.
