Laundromat gives free soap, low-cost dryers during tough times

A local Laundromat is giving back to the community by providing free soap, softener and 5-cent dryers every day.

MegaSuds Laundry on Boston Road opened four months ago in Crotona Park East. Owner Neil Lesher says he wanted to do something for those struggling in the tough economy.

Lesher says all washing machines are half-price in the early evening and mornings. He hopes other businesses will follow his lead and find ways to give back to the community.
