Need volunteer ideas for your SVA Service Award?

November 4, 2021

It’s not too late to clock in some hours before the end of year!

Wanting to do some more mahi for the SVA Service Award? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered for ideas and opportunities.

Community Clean Up – Go for a stroll around your neighbourhood and do a street clean up. A clean community is a happy community. Rally your household together for a day out!

Help Out Your Neighbours – Why not drop off a note to your elderly neighbours to see if they need a hand with anything. You could offer what socially-distanced tasks you’re happy to do like gardening, fence painting, shopping or walking dogs.

Remember to stay COVID-safe and follow the rules and guidelines for your COVID alert level.
