The Alex Community Health Centre in Calgary, Alberta, provides healthcare, counseling, food and community-building services to more than 6,000 people experiencing barriers to health, including many isolated seniors and parents raising children in poverty. They also operate a laundromat.
When they realized that many of their clients had to decide between buying food or doing laundry, they opened the Suds & Savings.
