Local young people celebrated National Volunteer Week in style on Wednesday 19 May, thanks to Volunteering WA and Lotterywest. The group shared pizza while learning all about volunteering in the Shire of Mundaring.
Special thanks to the Wheatbelt Volunteer Hub for sharing their knowledge with the participants. Attendees received lots of goodies and tips on how to find local volunteering opportunities.
THANK YOU TO ALL VOLUNTEERS IN THE SHIRE
Volunteers make our communities stronger, especially during times of need, crisis or isolation. When we help others in our community or give our time to a cause we value, we also give back to ourselves.
You can explore volunteer opportunities by visiting www.GoVolunteer.com.au.
Volunteering WA has released a useful publication full of tips and guidelines around re-starting volunteer programs and re-engaging your volunteers.
We are seeking volunteers with an interest and skills in information technology to support community members who need help using electronic devices such as mobiles, tablets and laptops.
We also require the help of volunteers who will be supported by the Shire to connect and provide information to community members. Tasks may include ringing to check in and simply ask “are you okay” or spending about an hour distributing important information through letter box drops.
To find out more and to register your interest, please contact the Shire on 9290 6666 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
