Each year, Vinnies Victoria celebrates the service milestones of our extraordinary team members at our Vinnies Shops.
The team of volunteers at Vinnies Camperdown had nine members hitting their volunteer milestones last year – with a combined total of 220 years of service!
Jeff Antcliff, General Manager, Retail & Youth at St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria, joined them at a Christmas lunch to celebrate their hard work and dedication.
The volunteers noted that they loved helping people and “helping people is what we all do best”.
As Jeff Antcliff told Channel 9 News: “Without our volunteers, Vinnies would not be able to operate in the Camperdown area.”
Our volunteers added that it was just like a family for them, and they found a sense of belonging in the shop.
These loyal members of our family are in the shop Monday to Friday, serving their community and raising funds to help locals in their time of need. The impact they have on the community is immense.
We are so grateful for the work our wonderful volunteers are doing at Camperdown supporting their community!
