Practical support for residents
DEEPWATER residents affected by the recent bushfires will now have access to free laundry and shower services.
Gladstone Regional Council, working alongside the Department of Communities, yesterday welcomed OrangeSky Australia to the support efforts already under way.
OrangeSky is an organisation that aims to positively connect communities through free laundry, shower services and conversation.
It will provide free laundry and shower services to residents who this week returned to their properties after being impacted by bushfires.
Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said it’s amazing how doing something as simple as laundry could bring a little bit of normality back into residents’ lives.
“OrangeSky will be working from the Recovery Hub at Wartburg Sport and Recreation Grounds,” Cr Burnett said.
“They will be providing free laundry services and shower services to any affected residents.”
The services will be available from today until Thursday, December 13. They will operate in Recovery Hub opening hours of 9am–5pm daily.
