"Those on the streets are doing it tough, pretty well every day. So to have some clean clothes, and some friends sitting on these orange chairs, having a chat is about as good as it gets."
"Tubbsy" began servicing Sydney on the 6th November 2015 with 8 services across 6 days a week.
Every night in Sydney more than 500 people are sleeping rough. Across the state of NSW more than 28,500 people are homeless on any given night and Orange Sky Laundry is proud that Tubbsy and his 6 orange chairs are able to foster positive and genuine conversations between our volunteers and friends on the street.
Family and Community Services NSW and The Good Guys combined to fund the delivery of this much needed service in Sydney. None of this would be possible without the support of our National Servicing Partner Richard Jay.
