Eastern Volunteers – 2009 end of year function

By December 10, 2009November 3rd, 2010No Comments

Eastern Volunteers provides volunteer recruitment and transport services for the frail aged and people with disabilities. The organisation has approximately twenty staff members and is supported through at least a hundred volunteers who assist in program delivery and services.

Tonight’s dinner provided an opportunity to thank the staff and volunteers who devote their time to the organisation and ensure that Eastern Volunteers is able to deliver its service professionally and sustainably.

Eastern Volunteers continues to experience strong growth and is planning on undertaking a series of major events over the course of next year to further its goals of securing funds for a new premises.

These events include the Fun Run in March, a Business Networking Dinner for April, the second Annual Regional Conference for August and the Multicultural Food Festival for October.

These events will assist in raising the profile of Eastern Volunteers and encourage new organisations and community members to become involved in the organisation.
