It’s National Volunteer Week

This week 21-27 June is National Volunteer Week.

National Volunteer Week honours the collective energies and mana of all volunteers in Aotearoa. They grow our people, open minds, open hearts and create joy.
And no more so than during their essential contribution to communities during COVID 19. Well before COVID 19 our volunteers were cherishing and caring for our people. During COVID 19 our country’s volunteers rallied to keep communities connected, to help them get well, stay well, and to answer the call to unite and be kind.
Volunteers have revealed through connecting, we belong. And through generosity and ngākau nui, big heartedness, communities will be strong, be well, and be able to meet challenges and changes, both big and small.
National Volunteer Week 2020 runs from June 21-27. This year’s theme is ‘Te Hua o te Mahi Tahi I The benefit of working together’. Join us this National Volunteer Week to celebrate how our communities are stronger when working together.
