A gift of service: lend a hand where it is needed

Given the response in 2011, ‘A Give of Service’ is back.  As we approach Christmas there are many community organisations that need help in delivering their services.

We would like to encourage you to give a gift of service this Christmas and volunteer at least 4 hours of your time before Christmas to lend a hand where it is needed.

It is our wish that by sharing with you the jobs, activities and tasks that community organisations have identified they need help with, that we make the choice of giving a gift of service a little easier to make.

You can do more than just send a seasons greeting or a merry Christmas.  You can do something meaningful, something that will make somebody’s day.  For more information about the ‘A Gift of Service’ challenge, read this post from last year.

Through Volunteers SA/NT we have identified jobs, activities and tasks accessible and you can find them here.

The volunteering has already started, including a few members of the NT Department of the Chief Minister and the NT Department of the Attorney-General and Justice,  joining with some Rotarians to help wrap presents for the Salvation Army’s Flying Padre (pictures below).

We also want to give a special thank you to John McNeur (Volunteers SA/NT) and Anne Coleman (NT Department of the Chief Minister) for their support of the ‘A Gift of Service’ initiative.

If you want to know where help is needed click here.  If you are part of an NGO that needs help, then email me.

Please feel free to email or post a comment and share what you did for your 4 hours.
