Red Truck Roofing Pty Ltd are an executive sponsor of the 2016 Variety Children’s Christmas Party.
The aim of the Special Children’s Christmas Party is to provide in excess of 3,000 children with a day they will never forget.
The children come from four major groups: The terminally ill, the intellectually impaired, physically impaired and also the underprivileged who may be suffering from domestic violence or physical abuse. Children arrive from all over South East Queensland, from as far north as Bundaberg, west to Roma and south to Tweed Heads.
Driver Prepare Program – Assisting local young people with logging their required driving hours.
From the donation of a vehicle from Yellow Cabs, funding from Red Truck Roofing and support of a local retired police officer who volunteers his time, The Cage Youth Foundation was able to established the driver prepare program in early 2016.
With the number of young people that are assisted through their programs, a need was identified that for many, due to their personal situations, were unable to obtain support in securing the required amount of driving hours required to secure their license and, a license being a necessity in many cases for securing a job.
Red Truck Roofing Pty Ltd proudly donated funds to enable Orange Sky Laundry to do one day’s laundry per month.
Orange Sky Laundry is the world’s first free mobile laundry service for the homeless. A crazy idea 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, SE 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 every week.
Red Truck Roofing Pty Ltd is proud of its stance on animal cruelty and will continue to financially support Animals Australia.
Animals Australia is the leading animal protection organisation in Australia. Their investigations and campaigns are recognised throughout the world. Their aim is to unite millions of people who believe in a world where animals are free from cruelty.

Red Truck Roofing Pty Ltd provided 30 metres of fencing and gates for their kennels, new guttering and the funds to purchase donation boxes.
Unlike many canine rescue centres which simply take dogs that are easy to adopt, GSDSinneed do not discriminate against the GSD’s that need help. GSDSinneed work alongside pounds and shelters to rescue the dogs that are not immediately suitable for adoption due to medical or behavioural issues. They also offer a private surrender service to the general public.
