REDARC were honoured to partner alongside Australian not-for-profit Orange Sky in November 2021 to launch solar powered laundry van to support people experiencing homelessness in Australian remote communities. Orange Sky provides access to free laundry services, warm showers and genuine, non-judgmental conversation and connection to community members doing it tough, across Australia and New Zealand via bright orange mobile vans.
With their dedicated ‘Imagination and Innovation’ department, the organisation strives to think outside the box to create smarter and more efficient ways to drive greater impact, with their most recent innovation, the RV3.0 vehicle, doing just that.
Catherine House is a provider of supported accommodation to women across South Australia facing homelessness. REDARC are continued supporters of this organisation with the most recent major event sponsorship for the 2019 Gala Dinner which was a success.
Members of the REDARC team and their families recently also competed in the annual City to Bay fun run. Catherine house was the chosen charity for team REDARC to raise money prior to competing.
Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are facing a major health crisis, yet it is rarely talked about. Prostate cancer is set to double in the next 15 years, three quarters of suicides are males. Half a million men take their own lives each year, that means one death every minute. REDARC's Occupational Health Nurse Michelle Kittel said, “It is exceptional to see the staff supporting the various Movember activities to the extent they have. Whether that is through participating in the MOVE challenge, growing a 'MO' or donating generously, every bit helps.”
REDARC is excited to be supporting Youth Opportunities, a youth organisation in South Australia that work with young people to equip them with the skills to overcome adversity, build resilience, and prepare them to make the right choices for their future. This is done by providing year ten students with a personal leadership, enterprise, and wellbeing program as well as ongoing support.
Their personal leadership programs are available for those who need them most and burden isn’t placed on schools or families.
REDARC has been supporting Junction Australia closely since 2011. Redarc supports Junction Australia in various ways, most recently using the prize money allocated from the 2014 Telstra Business Awards, REDARC donated $36,000 over a three year period, focusing on Family Connections Hackham.
