Event Storage, Fairy Bread and Red Frogs
How do you store enough party food and pancake mix to safely sustain a new generation of students heading into university with 70 parties over 7 days?
Red Frogs Australia faced that challenge for UQ O-Week 2017, and PODS were there to help!
Orientation Week, aka O-Week, at the University of Queensland (UQ), is well and vitally supported by Red Frogs Australia, and has been for many years. O-Week is a program of social and academic activities designed to introduce new students to life and study at UQ (and other universities across the country). This year, Red Frogs provided direct relief and support with hydration stations, pancake cookups, fairy bread, icy poles and red frogs to thousands of students embarking on their new studies.
Red Frogs is committed to ‘safeguarding a generation’ through support and education. With their university program, Red Frogs supports every major university across Australia. That is an enormous effort. PODS is proud to provide support in a small way by donating storage containers for this event.
By utilising a PODS storage container, we were able to provide logistical support by way of consolidating resources onsite at the university instead of having to traffic items back and forth between the UQ campus at St Lucia and Red Frogs head office in Carindale. It also enabled immediate and ongoing access for Red Frogs crew to supplies as and when needed for events throughout the O-Week period.
This support made for incredibly smooth operations throughout the week, and, in the words of Bek Dukes, Red Frogs Australia Communications & Marketing Manager “we would not have been able to do what we did so easily without it!”
Can PODS help with a storage solution for your next event?
At PODS we are proud to provide support to community groups and initiatives across the country. We do this out of a genuine desire to support community groups, and demonstrate to business and residential customers alike just how effective our storage and moving services are.
For Red Frogs Australia, we provided several storage containers for onsite storage at their event. We delivered the containers prior to the event so Red Frogs could get everything organised, and over the course of a few weeks, the containers were filled then emptied of supplies needed to sustain a few thousand students through the O-Week celebrations.
If you think PODS could be an effective solution for your business and or upcoming event, call our Customer Care team on 1800 467 637 for a quote today.
More about Red Frogs Australia
Red Frogs Chaplaincy Network began in Australia at Schoolies Week in 1997 and moved in to the university culture in 2002. Recognizing that the culture of young people is dominated by alcohol and that excessive consumption of alcohol and other substances can lead to dangerous and life altering behaviours, Red Frogs have made it their mission to provide a positive peer presence in alcohol-fuelled environments where young people gather through engaging education and promoting and providing non-alcoholic and/or diversionary activities.

Did you know that, thanks to Allens, Red Frogs give out 16 tonnes of red frogs every year? That’s a lot of red frog lollies!
