Vinnies Cowra is looking for people with compassion, a non-judgmental attitude and most of all a good and kind heart to join a Conference group that assists people who are disadvantaged or in need in the local area.
Last year in Cowra, Conference members were very busy helping out with electricity and gas bills, food vouchers, clothing, travel and medical costs. Vinnies are often the first point of contact for people seeking help and sales from St Vincent de Paul Shops across the Central West fund approximately 85 percent of the assistance given out.
Your personal attributes to perform this care and support role will be a genuine desire to serve those in need, an ability to maintain confidences and respect for the privacy of those we assist, ability to listen and respond without judging and a willingness to join with others to support those in need.
We are seeking volunteers who could help out on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning 9:30 – 12:00. Your help on any of those days will make a real difference to the work we do in the Cowra area.
You will be trained and mentored at every stage. You will enjoy the support and community life that is part of the Conference. You will gain a greater understanding of poverty and disadvantage and how it impacts people’s lives and you will experience what it means to put one’s faith into action.
You will meet some wonderful people and you will feel a great sense of achievement when you have given a hand up to someone and not just a hand out.
We are a very friendly group at Cowra with an emphasis on sharing, supporting and caring for each other. We also have a lot of fun and laughs.
We very much look forward to meeting you and you can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome from our team – please come and join us.
