Thanks for tire­less ef­fort

Central and North Burnett Times - - OPINION -

VOL­UN­TEERS keep Aus­tralian com­mu­ni­ties thriv­ing. There­fore, dur­ing National Vol­un­teer Week (May 13-19), our or­gan­i­sa­tion wants to say thank you to the na­tion’s six mil­lion vol­un­teers.

The Spinal In­juries As­so­ci­a­tion is ex­tremely for­tu­nate to have 50 vol­un­teers around Queens­land who work tire­lessly for our not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion.

From rais­ing aware­ness about in­jury preven­tion in class­rooms as part of our Spinal Ed­u­ca­tion Aware­ness Team pro­gram to our 20 Queens­land sup­port net­works, we could not achieve ev­ery­thing we do with­out our re­mark­able vol­un­teers. The fol­low­ing quote is apt for the im­pact that vol­un­teers have on com­mu­ni­ties:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, com­mit­ted cit­i­zens can change the world; in­deed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Mar­garet Mead
