Vol­un­teers’ work crit­i­cal in NZ

Waitaki Herald - - ADVERTISING FEATURE - Vol­un­teers for the an­nual Mul­ti­ple Scle­ro­sis of­fer a heart­felt smile for your do­na­tion.

Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week (NVW) 2015 will be held from 21 and 27 June.

NVW is a fan­tas­tic chance to celebrate the in­valu­able knowl­edge, skill and time con­tri­bu­tions given by Aotearoa’s past and present vol­un­teers.

This year’s theme is ‘‘There is a place for you to vol­un­teer’’ or ‘‘he wahi mo­hou hei tuao’’ which high­lights the di­ver­sity of vol­un­teer op­por­tu­ni­ties, vol­un­teers them­selves, and the im­pacts of volunteering.

Through­out NVW, New Zealan­ders recog­nise the crit­i­cal im­pact all kinds of volunteering have within com­mu­ni­ties.

Vol­un­teers should be ap­pre­ci­ated, mo­bilised, mo­ti­vated and en­cour­aged dur­ing this week and in­deed year-round.

It is im­por­tant to celebrate vol­un­teerism and the place it has in keep­ing our com­mu­ni­ties strong and healthy.

Through NVW we also want to en­cour­age those who have not yet found their place in the vol­un­teer com­mu­nity to seek it out and be aware that con­tri­bu­tions can be both big and small.

Re­gard­less of how much or how lit­tle skills, time and ex­pe­ri­ence one has to of­fer, there will al­ways be a place to vol­un­teer.
