Across the country Volunteering New Zealand and Volunteer Centres will be celebrating the significant contribution volunteers make.

Minister for the Community and Voluntary Sector Priyanca Radhakrishnan advises:

“The Big Shout Out is an excellent opportunity to show how much we value our volunteers”. “We all know people who generously give their time, energy and expertise to causes they believe in. The Big Shout Out will be about recognising and thanking those volunteers doing what may sometimes seem like thankless tasks” “The reality is that they’re the backbone of our society. For example, 90 per cent of our community organisations are entirely volunteer run”.

Volunteer Kāpiti will celebrating volunteers throughout the week. Though sharing volunteer stories, we want everyone to recognise the difference volunteers make in our community, inspire more people to volunteer and celebrate the collective mahi aroha that supports our Kāpiti community.
