Did you know that you can volunteer for The Smith Family?
The Australian-based children’s charity, which focuses on furthering education to stop the poverty cycle in families, runs regular events to encourage sponsors and individuals to help out. In addition to their famous Winter and Christmas Appeals, there are many other ways that you can help during the year:
- One-off donations
- Sponsor a child
- Host a gift collection
- Mentor a young person
- Workplace giving, and much more.
“Volunteering was a lot of fun, the other volunteers were very friendly, and The Smith Family were so accommodating,” Jackie said. “On a personal note, it made me realise how lucky I am, and to see first-hand the positive impact ECOTECH is having on young people’s lives,” she added.
