Unitywater has today announced a $15,000 commitment to co-fund a new Orange Sky Laundry van to service Noosa, as well as Caboolture and the Sunshine Coast region.
Orange Sky Laundry (OSL) is a free mobile laundry service for the homeless and travels throughout the region to help those sleeping rough wash their clothes and have a friendly chat with OSL operators.
For the last six months, Orange Sky Laundry has operated a temporary laundry van on the Sunshine Coast, but the permanent van will enable the service to extend to Noosa and Caboolture.
Unitywater’s contribution follows a large donation by a private donor and other funding from local councils and community groups, with the new van expected to be in use from early May.
Unitywater community relations specialist Kate Cash said the van was a much-needed service for a growing community issue.
“There has been significant demand for the Orange Sky Laundry in our communities, so it’s wonderful to be part of a permanent solution,” she said.
“We are proud to join our councils to help provide a regular laundry service for those less fortunate.”
2016 Young Australians of the Year and co-founders of Orange Sky Laundry Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett said this was a fabulous testimony to people working together to help connect others who were doing it tough.
“Orange Sky aims to positively connect communities,” they said.
“It’s been great to see councils and community groups pulling together to help make people’s lives just a little bit easier. We are so thrilled to be able to deliver the permanent van to the region.”
