Eastern Volunteers Gift Wrapping Recognition Function

By February 16, 2011February 19th, 2011No Comments

Volunteers form the lifeblood of many communities and it is important to recognise their efforts. Volunteering can be ongoing or provided for a project of a specified duration and in either case it is important to demonstrate that these efforts were appreciated.

This afternoon Eastern Volunteers held a recognition afternoon for the volunteers that assisted in giftwrapping over Christmas. The project, which was a partnership with Eastland Shopping Centre, involved volunteers wrapping gifts in exchange for a donation.

Eastern Volunteers recruited volunteers who were able to provide the service over a two-week period. These efforts raised over $5000 with Eastland receiving extremely positive feedback from the partnership.

The recognition function provided the opportunity to acknowledge the efforts of these volunteers, as well as the involvement of Eastland Shopping Centre in providing this initiative.
