The Richard Jay community support takes many forms and always ties in with our core belief that every Australian deserves clean sheets, clean dishes and clean clothes to wear. As a family business where relationships are everything, we have strong ties to the communities we operate in.
For instance, we donate second-hand machinery to women’s shelters around Australia, knowing how those clean clothes and fresh sheets can make people feel that little bit better and brighter about the future.
One of our Richard Jay proudest community support is the collaboration with Orange Sky – the world’s first free mobile laundry in a van for people experiencing homelessness.
Richard Jay partnered with Orange Sky as a founding sponsor in 2014, knowing what a difference freshly laundered clothes can make to a person’s day.
For this very special purpose we received support from one of the global leading laundry brands, LG stepped in to equip Orange Sky with reliable washing machines built to handle anything. With a robust direct drive motor and superior water efficiency, LG washing machines deliver outstanding durability and brilliantly clean wash performance. Orange Sky often reports back about how crucial these hard-working LG machines have been to the cause, given how much washing the charity does each week.
Richard Jay has been a proud national distributor of LG washing machines and dryers for over a decade.
With high-spin, extremely quiet machines that have low water usage and fast cycle times, the LG Commercial range is ideal for business needs. With no internal belts, they have fewer breakdowns – meaning less lost revenue and fewer frustrations for both customers and business owners. All LG Commercial washers offer an auto-detergent feed that allow for laundry detergent to be automatically injected into each wash-cycle – ensuring no over-sudsing, spills or mess.

In 2014 we agreed to come on board because we know how wearing clean clothes can make a genuine difference to a person’s state of mind.
It may seem like a small thing, but we’ve seen for ourselves how freshly laundered clothes and good hygiene can make a person feel a little bit brighter as they move through the world.
Richard Jay was also proud to donate numerous dispensers for both laundry liquid and hand sanitiser to support Orange Sky’s volunteers.

“Did you know that Richard Jay was Orange Sky’s first ever partner? (Some of their staff were also founding Board members!)
Over the past five years, Richard Jay and LG Electronics have supported Orange Sky with the supply of laundry machines and parts, as well as servicing, to ensure that our friends stay connected. Thanks, Richard Jay, for your continued support, we couldn’t do it without you!”
