Disability service provider Endeavour Foundation is marking National Volunteer Week (May 13-19) with celebrations in each of its 39 Recycled Clothing stores throughout Queensland and in Sydney.
A morning tea will be held in each store to say ‘Thanks a million’ to the dedicated volunteers who work there.
Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing stores are supported by hundreds of big-hearted volunteers every day – enabling the not-for-profit organisation to raise vital funds and support people with a disability to have the choices of an ordinary life.
These volunteers are being recognised in all ERC stores to celebrate their hard work which includes sorting clothes and accessories, laundry and ironing, stock maintenance, cleaning and tidying and serving customers.
As part of the celebrations, the ERC ‘Volunteer of the Year’ award will be presented this week, along with runner-up prizes.
Executive General Manager of Consumer Businesses, Leanne Rudd, said ERC volunteers are the backbone of the stores.
“We enjoy the fantastic support of so many dedicated people,” Ms Rudd said. “An amazing 658 people volunteer their time and skills at Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing stores.
“They are ordinary people who do a truly extraordinary job. They are always happy to donate their time to raise funds to support people with a disability.
“It’s no exaggeration to say our volunteers are the lifeblood of Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing stores,” Ms Rudd said. “We’re hugely grateful for their support – and that’s why we’re hosting a morning tea in each of our stores.”
She added: “We always need volunteers, so please get in touch with us if you want to make a difference to the lives of people with a disability.”
Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing stores stock quality recycled clothing, vintage treasures, books, accessories, bric-a-brac and more. Specialist stores stock bridal wear and designer labels.
There are many benefits to volunteering at an Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing store – including meeting new people, learning new skills, being part of a fantastic team and supporting a wonderful cause.
If you would like to volunteer, please call your local ERC store (find your local store here).
