The Bega District News and Tarra Motors mobile laundry van has been delivered to Cobargo.
Anyone who needs a place to wash and dry their clothes can visit the Cobargo Showground and use the facility.
On Monday, Australian Community Media sales manager Tim Shinnick received a call from Bega Valley Shire Mayor Kristy McBain asking if it could be taken to the bushfire devastated town of Cobargo where people are sheltering at the town's showground.
The next day John Stylianou from Tarra Motors delivered the van to Bega Valley Shire councillor Tony Allen in the town, where it will be put to good use.
"The town of Cobargo is truly thankful," Mr Shinnick said.
"This is why I set this van up - to help our community."
The original idea was to create a fully-contained laundrette made available for free to the region's homeless.
It is planned to have counselling support workers on hand so there is someone to talk to while people wait for their load to finish.
Eventually the van will be travelling on a schedule from Narooma to Eden, parking at locations deemed appropriate for the privacy of clients.
The van could not have been created without the help and support of the community.
