Run by more than 600 volunteers across the country, the custom-fitted vans with two commercial washing machines and two dryers service 73 locations and wash more than 7,000 kgs of laundry every week. A catalyst for conversation, Orange Sky Laundry facilitates over 1300 hours of volunteering and conversation each week. The organisation has also responded to natural disasters, helping cyclone-affected communities in North Queensland, residents of the Great Ocean Road Bushfires, and more recently, Adelaide flood victims. Orange Sky Laundry to date has washed over 300,000 kgs of free laundry, but most importantly, fostered over 80,000 hours of positive, genuine and non-judgemental conversation.
