Ethical business practices and social responsibility are at the core of our organisation. As the owners of Red Truck Roofing, we firmly believe that one of the greatest values every company should nurture is the ability to give back to their staff and community. We know that cultivating a positive company culture and giving back go hand in hand.
Our giving strategy focuses on three sectors:
Profit sharing with our staff means they have a vested interest in the company and gives us confidence that we know they are going to go the extra mile for our customers.
We also choose to support charities that our employees have a particular affinity with. By involving our employees, this further assists in helping to engage them in our company values.
2. Our Local Community; and
We believe businesses everywhere have the resources and reach to provide a positive impact in their communities. We are proud to partner with trusted organisations which do so much to strengthen our local community.
The Cage works with local councils and employment agencies to offer meaningful opportunities to youth. Their mission is to encourage these youth to become change agents in their own lives and to provide them with the support to achieve those changes.
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.
The brand new orange sky showers van is custom fitted with 2 showers, self sufficient heating, water tanks and it will partner with our Orange Sky Laundry vans and other essential service providers to better connect the community.
Night Ninja’s – Supporting the Redland City Homeless Community
Night Ninja’s Australia is a Not-For-Profit Organisation that focusses on helping people who are experiencing homelessness. They have crews of people who go out on the streets to provide essential items to those that need it most – food, blankets, clothing, toiletries and other essentials. They also offer referral assistance to organisations that can provide emergency housing and other forms of assistance.
Redland Bay Men’s Shed
After being given the opportunity to quote on the roof for the Redland Bay Men’s Shed, and winning the quote due to us being the cheapest price, we thought it would be a fitting gesture to donate some Bunnings vouchers to help kick start them.
The Australian Mens Shed Association (AMSA) is a community-based organisation that’s accessible to all whose primary activity is the provision of a safe, friendly & healing environment. Members are able to work on meaningful projects at their own pace, in their own time and in the company of others. A key focus is to advance the well-being and health of its members & to encourage social inclusion.
Pat Doolan, the owner/director of Red Truck Roofing was an auxiliary fireman for 15 years and volunteered for duty when the tragic Canberra bushfire struck in 2003 that saw 70% of the ACT pastures, forests (pine plantations), and nature parks destroyed. Whilst Pat is no longer a auxiliary firefighter, he continues to financially support the Rural Fire Brigade.
Pat Doolan, the owner/director of Red Truck Roofing believes the Queensland Surf Life Savers is a great avenue for youth and financially supports their great work

3. Our compassion to animals
Red Truck Roofing Pty Ltd is proud of its stance on animal cruelty. Each year we will continue to financially support Animals Australia and help give the animals a voice against inhumane treatment.
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.
“Animals Australia’s vision is a world where all animals are treated with compassion and respect and are free from cruelty. We believe that we can create a kinder world for all by fostering respect for animals and that our treatment of animals reflects who we are as individuals and as a society…”
Over the past two years, Red Truck Roofing have been able to help the GSDinneed with dog beds, food, new fencing and gates, guttering and other materials required onsite to keep their dogs safe and dry. We would like to acknowledge Jenny Golsby from the Complete Pet Company for the fantastic discounts to us on the food and bedding purchased this year by Red Truck Roofing.
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.
