AUSTIN, Texas — Four Austin-area churches that are part of the Austin Disaster Relief Network are offering showers and laundry facilities to people who do not have access to clean, running water because of the recent winter storms. You can visit ADRN's website to reserve a time slot to take a warm shower and clean your clothes. You must sign up in advance.
Two locations were open Monday for those who needed a shower and needed to wash their clothes. The following locations will be open Tuesday:
- Northeast Austin: Our Savior Lutheran Church (1513 East Yager Lane, Austin 78756)
- Southeast Austin: Shoreline Church – South Campus (2008 Brandt. Rd., Austin 78744)
People are asked to bring their own towels, soap, shampoo and laundry detergent.
“Hundreds of residents still don’t have access to water following the devastation of the winter storm last week, and may be out of service for several more days or even weeks,” ADRN Executive Director Daniel Geraci said in a press release Monday. “Burst pipes and other ongoing water issues mean they don’t have access to basic necessities such as showers and cleaning laundry. These four network churches have stepped up to serve our community and help our neighbors by providing these basic services to keep their families healthy.”
As of Monday afternoon, parts of northwest Austin and southwest Austin are still under a boil water notice.
The latest updates on Austin's boil water notice can be found on the city's website.
