Parkwood Rotary got into the spirit of fundraising for Domestic and Sexual Violence!
Steve Legg from Kiwanis Club of Pacific Pines, informed us how he and his club are trying to create more awareness and raise funds to help victims of Domestic Violence by establishing, 'Teal Sock Day' which has been established to have a positive impact on the lives of children and families who have been affected by Domestic and Sexual Violence.

On Tuesday night we had the pleasure of meeting Jenny Massey the Gold Coast representative from Orange Sky Laundry. Jenny spoke to the team about the service Orange Sky Laundry provides to the homeless on the Gold Coast and how it is expanding throughout the nation.
Orange Sky Laundry is the world's first free mobile laundry service for the homeless. The idea came about in 2014 to put two washing machines and two dryers in a van and wash and dry clothes for free. Starting in the streets of Brisbane, Orange Sky has now grown to 10 services across Australia in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Sydney, Sunshine Coast, Canberra, Perth, Adelaide, South East Melbourne and Hobart.
Orange Sky Laundry now does over 6.9 tonnes of laundry every week. However most importantly, has over 1,300 hours of positive and genuine conversations each week.
A remarkably simple idea providing dignity and friendship to our homeless.
