Linens N Love's mission is to donate and repurpose 100,000 linens to charities and shelters in need including animal shelters, homeless shelters, teen outreach centers, and veteran homes while focusing on service-based leadership among youth. Linens N Love emphasizes the importance of educational opportunities within our deliveries which encompass shelter tours and reflection sessions.
To create a world where we minimize the amount of waste that goes to landfills, all while promoting the importance of student leadership and community service among youth and providing warmth to individuals around the world.
Founded in 2014 by Vivian Wang and May Wang, Linens N Love is an award-winning 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that collects pillows, bed sheets, towels, blankets, and more from franchise hotels that would throw them out because of the smallest imperfections that would not make the cut for the franchise’s standards.
And because of that, the linens we donate are high-quality linens in great condition. Linens N Love supports many groups, and with everyone's help, we can improve the lives of homeless families, dogs and cats in shelters, abused women, struggling families, and more.
We emphasize service-based leadership to create meaningful educational opportunities by training student leaders to coordinate their own deliveries. Students gain professional insight by communicating with hotel managers to request donations. Students manage collecting donations and coordinating with shelters for deliveries. To ensure each volunteer experience is unique and memorable, we go on tours of the shelter after we unload donations, followed by a reflective session in the form of an article or question-and-answer session with volunteers or victims at the shelter.
Our goal is to donate 100,000 linens to charities in need. Together, we have witnessed how clean bed sheets provide a sense of security and self for a victim escaping domestic violence or a family who’s lost everything from Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey.
We are dreamers and doers. All it takes to get started is a little bit of love.
