People like Cass rely on Orange Sky for clean clothes and a sense of community
But it's only possible thanks to kind donations from people like you.
Cass was a working single mum looking after two kids. Then sadly, she was diagnosed with cancer. And when Cass couldn’t afford her increased rental payments, she had no choice but to move into her car.
When Cass found Orange Sky over a year ago, her visits have become more than just the soap and water our washing machines provide.
“That opportunity to go in, get your clean clothes and a fresh shower, it's almost like winning the lottery,” says Cass. “I feel fresh and almost like a new person with my fresh clothes. And everything I save thanks to Orange Sky goes towards improving my life.”
There's definitely a social aspect too. Like I said, you come here, you get treated like part of the family. They're [Orange Sky volunteers] like your big aunties and uncles and brothers, sisters. You get very spoiled."
We can’t end homelessness alone, but you and Orange Sky can make a practical difference for people like Cass who are experiencing homelessness and hardship.
With a monthly donation you can give someone doing it tough the best feeling in the world – fresh clothes and a fresh start.
