A young TV news cameraman in Australia and his friend have hollowed out a van to fit a pair of washers and dryers to offer free laundry services for Brisbane’s homeless.

Lucas Patchett and Nic Marchesi retrofitted the van themselves and bought a generator to run the four machines that were donated by sponsors. Washing powder has also been donated.

The mobile machines can also be plugged in at food and shelter centers where the homeless are staying.

They hope Orange Sky Laundry will catch on and that one day there will be a fleet of vans servicing locations around the country.

See how you can get involved, volunteer, and donate to help Orange Sky Laundry at their website.
