vinnies red cross call for volunteers

Sumary of Vinnies, Red Cross call for volunteers:

  • The Red Cross and St and the St Vincent De Paul Society lost many of their elderly volunteers as the pandemic took hold and lockdown lasted for months.
  • Vinnies NSW chief executive Jack de Groot said thrift shops raised critical funds needed to help people at risk of or experiencing homelessness, domestic violence and poverty.
  • In the first quarter of the financial year, there was a 20 per cent increase in the number of people seeking assistance from Vinnies’ DV services.
  • Mr de Groot said people would need extra help in the lead-up to Christmas.
  • “This is coming at the worst possible time as there are significant pressures on Vinnies’ services that are driving demand up,” he said.
