The unique service
is to launder the homeless clothing.

The Brisbane Van has been servicing parks in the Brisbane and surrounding areas since August, 2014.

The trial period proved an amazing success and the project is now operating all around the country.

The first ever Orange Sky Laundry van was initially set up as a pilot van to test the idea and see if the service would be used..

In 2015 there are more than 270 volunteers operate the vans - which have two commercial washing machines and two dryers - and reach homeless Australians in 36 locations.

Collectively they wash
more than 350 loads each week in Brisbane, Melbourne, South East Victoria, Sydney and the Gold Coast.

In 2015, the pair took their service to North Queensland to help cyclone-affected communities.

Marchesi and Patchett have been honoured with the title of Young Australians of the Year this year in 2016. This is the first time an Australian of the Year award has been collected by two people.
