MEDFORD, Ore-- A church in Medford offers free showers and laundry services to people in need.

Every hour a new load of laundry starts. It isn't the same person's clothes. This trailer holds washers and dryers plus three showers. Three times a week anyone can go get clean. It's open Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It doesn't start until 10 am, but people start lining up at 8 am.

On Wednesday more than 15 people were on a list to do their laundry. I talked to Cameron Bursell at the trailer. He runs the shower and the laundry. He explains why it's important to have these services for people in need. "It makes you feel better about yourself. You know you're clean and you have clean laundry. It makes it to where you are able to look for work. You don't feel like such a bum." said Cameron Bursell. 

Bursell tells me some of the people that come through are finally able to get jobs, because they are clean. They also have somewhere to come and stay clean.
