Care Counts™ Laundry Program by Whirlpool
Education has a laundry problem
Every day, thousands of kids miss school because they don’t have access to clean clothes. Whirlpool is installing washers and dryers in schools to help.
Dirty clothes lead kids to drop out.
Elementary students who frequently miss school risk falling behind their peers and a limited future. That’s why 25% of teachers use their own resources to help kids with dirty clothes1. If laundry day could happen any day, students’ lives could change.
1 in 5 students don't have access to clean clothes2, making them more likely to miss school
Kids who miss school are 7x more likely to drop out2
All this progress is just the beginning.
Since 2015, Whirlpool continues outpacing its goals of the Care Counts™ laundry program. But until all kids have access to clean clothes, these numbers will always feel too small.
