NATIONAL Volunteer Week (NVW) is the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. This year, National Volunteer Week 2020 was held from Monday 18 May – Sunday 24 May 2020 with the theme “Changing Communities. Changing Lives”.
While celebrations were subdued acrosss the nation, National Volunteer Week 2020 has given us all a chance to take stock and appreciate all the efforts of our army of volunteers and Currajong is no different.
“Simply put, volunteers are part of the backbone of our organisation,” said Dane Millerd of Currajong Disability Services.
“Whether it be a student studying prac, a support worker donating more time or a family member who wants to help – we are extremely grateful for all of our volunteers,” said Dane.
“While we may not have been able to pay tribute the way we would have liked this year like in previous years, it certainly doesn’t dilute the importance of the contribution of our volunteers or days like today,” he said.
“Volunteering is great for self-confidence and the community and really can help empower and inspire.”
And Currajong is always happy to look at more volunteers.
“We are always happy to look at more volunteers. The health sector lags a distant fifth in the most volunteered for organisations in Australia behind nearly every major group so hopefully we can improve that,” said Dane.
