Make a difference in someone’s life
By volunteering, you can be sure you’re making a difference for those in need. For some Vinnies volunteers, this is a chance to give something back to the community, to use their skills and experience to make a difference in the lives of people who need assistance the most. For others, it is a chance to develop new skills and experience in a supportive environment.
Make a difference in your own life too
Volunteering for Vinnies is a rich and rewarding experience. As a volunteer, you’ll benefit from:
- The satisfaction of helping others
- Sharing your skills and teaching others
- Learning new skills
- The sense of community and friendship.
Volunteering in a retail centre
Vinnies has hundreds of stores Australia wide. Revenue raised from the stores allows for the continuation of vital services Vinnies runs across the country.
Retail volunteer roles include Retail Assistant and Donation Sorting volunteers.
In this video Canberra Dickson store manager Simon Felgate discusses the importance of volunteers at his store. He says without their generosity, stores would find it very difficult to operate.
