The inaugural Spin Cycle Film Competition will take place over the course of 48 hours on May 30th-June 1st. This event will benefit Project Laundry, a Wichita non-profit providing regular opportunities to help students and families who are struggling financially by assisting them with doing their laundry. Currently, Project Laundry offers free laundry every Thursday (each Thursday at a different location) of the month except for months that have five Thursdays. In addition, a third Tuesday laundry event happens each month.

Project Laundry understands the importance for kids to have clean clothes. When this basic need is unmet, kid's learning and behavior is affected. Because of this, Project Laundry is partnering with local schools to provide washer and dryers to schools that have both a need and the space. We have placed washer and dryer sets in the following USD 259 schools: South High School, Dunbar Support Center, Chester Lewis Academy, Irving Elementary, and Truesdell Middle School.
