It is incredibly rewarding to give back to the community and now there is an easy way for volunteers to connect with local community organisations in need of help.
I have partnered with DoSomething!, which connects willing volunteers to community groups in their area. I encourage local community groups and volunteers to get on board.
As a volunteer, all you need to do is type your postcode or suburb into http://www.dosomethingnearyou.com.au/Greg-Hunt and find a group that suits you.
Volunteers can sign up for Phillip Island or San Remo SES, volunteer for the Woolamai Surf Life Saving Club, participate in the Lions Club of San Remo-Newhaven, join the Rotary Club of Phillip Island and San Remo, help out at the Vinnies op shop in Cowes, volunteer at the Phillip Island Library or help out with countless other community groups.
There are so many local organisations doing terrific things to help others and this is an opportunity for anyone who wants to give back to the community.
DoSomething! also posts information on the website about upcoming events you can get involved in such as Clean Up Australia Day, Daffodil Day, National Tree Day and the Red Shield Appeal.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of these community groups and many are desperately seeking additional volunteers to allow them to continue their good work.
By giving back and volunteering, we can make our communities stronger and happier places to live.
Take this opportunity to Do Something Near You and make a difference.
Community groups and not-for-profit organisations can register to be included on the website at no cost to their organisation at http://www.dosomethingnearyou.com.au/register-organisation
