MARION -- Aetna Better Health of Illinois will host a "Free Laundry and Literacy Day" on Thursday, Mar. 31. The event will take place at the Wonder Wash Laundry Center, 804 N. Court St., Marion, from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m.

Aetna, a CVS Health® company, partners with LaundryCares and Too Small to Fail to give back to underserved communities across the state.

Together, they will address the unmet needs of laundry customers by providing essential services aimed at making healthy lifestyle choices more accessible.

The Laundry & Literacy Days events will give residents access to free laundry services and learning resources for early childhood development, free screenings, and health and wellness education at designated community locations. Each location has been chosen to reach Medicaid members and those who live in areas with inadequate access to care in Chicago and throughout Illinois.

Free laundry is at a first-come, first-served basis. There is a limit of two laundry cycles per participating family. Free laundry is not guaranteed after 6 p.m.
