STAR Community Services
Logo for STAR Community Services

It is incredibly sad how many of our elderly are alone, particularly at this time of year. Last year we had one lady cry and say that she had not received a gift in over 6 years! By volunteering for the appeal you can help STAR to spread Christmas joy after another challenging year.

You can volunteer to help with any (or all) of the following:

  • collect donations from local businesses
  • wrap gifts
  • deliver gifts to seniors

Christmas appeal tasks include:

  • collecting donations (gifts and non-perishable food items) from designated pick up points and, with permission, take a photo of the donor/s
  • gift wrapping at our Cleveland, Ipswich and Gold Coast offices
  • delivering Christmas gifts to community groups/members
  • all or a combination of these duties

We seek volunteers with the following attributes:

  • good communication and interpersonal skills
  • a positive and friendly attitude

Plus for collection and delivery of donations

  • the ability to engage with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders
  • the ability to deal with vulnerable clients with complex needs
