The Nationals Member for Shepparton District, Kim O’Keeffe, is calling on people to nominate local volunteers who make a difference for the 2023 Victorian Volunteering Awards.
The awards are now open, with nominations closing next Monday, July 17. They include recognition for individuals and organisations who have made an impact or improved outcomes by volunteering.
Ms O’Keeffe said she is incredibly proud of the efforts of volunteers and their amazing work.
“I regularly meet with incredible volunteers who give their time in many different areas. From health support groups to the SES, to op shops, Rotary, CWA, Kiwanis, RSL, homeless services, disaster relief, the list goes on.
“These wonderful people are just a small part of the many volunteers out there making a difference. The 2023 Victorian Volunteering Awards is a chance to honour them for their selfless contributions.”
Ms O’Keeffe said she was immensely grateful to those that give up their time for the betterment of the community.
“I am especially proud and moved by stories of volunteers that jumped into action to assist those that were impacted by last year’s devastating floods.
“We are so fortunate to have so many wonderful volunteers and this is a chance to recognise their efforts,” said Ms O’Keeffe.
