Our volunteers receive and warehouse stock, pick and pack orders and prepare parcels for distribution by Australia Post. Without their time, freely and cheerfully given, we would be unable to send out approximately 600 individual parcels each month. We are extremely grateful for the contribution they all make. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, and can commit to a regular time period on one or more of Monday, Tuesday or Thursday mornings, we would welcome you to contact Sue on the number at the bottom of this page.
