City staff keen to lend a helping hand
Wanslea Early Learning and Development in Rockingham has been visited by City of Rockingham staff who helped to lend a helping hand around the premises.
City volunteers rolled up their sleeves on April 9 and helped with a number of tasks including clearing the garden area, removing grass and dirt, laying new wood chips and varnishing a cubby house.
The volunteering efforts were the latest action in the City’s Corporate Volunteering Program, which is an initiative from the City’s Volunteering Strategy 2016-2022.
City of Rockingham chief executive Michael Parker said corporate volunteering helped strengthen bonds in the City.
“Corporate volunteering plays an important role in developing strong and connected communities so the City was delighted to assist Wanslea Early Learning and Development with a range of tasks,” he said.
“Not only does corporate volunteering give community organisations the chance to boost their operations, it also gives City staff a fantastic opportunity to connect with residents and understand the value that local organisations like this bring to the community. It also illustrates the value the City places on key community groups that provide vital services to residents.
Other groups will be helped in future projects.
