IRONING - even the word itself conjures up the image of boredom for many residents.
However, for many years an organisation in Leeton has been offering a service where residents can have their laundry and ironing done for a small fee.
Kurrajong Laundry employs residents with a disability, giving them an opportunity to enter the workforce.
It's a win-win situation, the staff earn money and gain many skills, while residents can tick some housework off their list without living a finger.
Kurrajong Laundry in Leeton has recently moved to a new premises in Pine Avenue.
Kurrajong Laundry has been a part of the Leeton community for 20 years and continues to provide high-quality laundry and ironing services, focused on its Leeton shire customers.
The operation now has four employees who work five days a week at the new Leeton premises.
Kurrajong Supported Living Services manager Deeanne Bolesta said while the move to the new premises was exciting for staff, the program itself wasn't changing.
"Leeton community members enjoy coming to Kurrajong Laundry to leave their ironing in the capable hands of the team, or to drop off linen to be transported to Kurrajong Laundry in Narrandera," she said.
"Kurrajong Laundry also has a home delivery service available in both Leeton and Narrandera."
Kurrajong is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing support to residents with disability.
The new facility is located at 28 to 30 Pine Avenue.
Anyone interested in disability support services, should call Kurrajong First Contact on 1300 764 620.
