National Volunteer Week 18-24 May 2020
National Volunteer Week has approached us this year under very different circumstances. Like so many other organisations our plans to celebrate this week have been put on hold, except one, to recognise and acknowledge the wonderful contribution all our Vinnies WA volunteers make each and every day to our community.
Changing Communities, Changing Lives is a theme every single one of our 4000 Vinnies volunteers embraces. From our volunteers who donate their time to providing practical assistance to vulnerable Western Australians, to our retail volunteers who provide a friendly face to people who enter our stores, and our Distribution Centre volunteers, sorting, assembling and packing, keeping our shops and Emergency Assistance going.
Our Vinnies WA volunteers believe in the work we do. Their diverse backgrounds and different experiences add richness to our work. They help shape your community because they care, and want to change the lives of over 55,000 people each year that Vinnies WA supports.
To all of our Vinnies WA volunteers who are still working with us, the many waiting for us to reopen, and new volunteers wanting to join us, you all can and do make our Vinnies WA community a better place.
