Migrants and Volunteering go hand in hand! When people first arrive in New Zealand it can be very hard to integrate into communities or find jobs. One great way to not only gain friends and up skill yourself all while giving back to the community, is to volunteer with one of Wellington’s many many charities.
Of course, our favourite place is at our Vinnies Op Shops. We have 8 locations over Wellington, so you can almost always find one in your local suburb or walking distance.
That was definitely the case for our lovely Volunteer Seetha!
We love all of our great volunteers here at Vinnies–we simply would not be able to function without them!
