AMP Financial Planning and Hillross Advisers kicked off their year in a charitable way through a corporate volunteer day at MercyCare.
About 30 advisers volunteered at MercyCare’s Residential Aged Care on Monday January 19.
As part of the volunteer day organised by Volunteering WA, the team helped spruce up MercyCare’s Residential Aged Care in Wembley, helping to decorate the facility ahead of its Australia Day celebrations and spending time with elderly residents.
MercyCare Chief Executive Officer Chris Hall said MercyCare was grateful for the support and generosity of corporate volunteers who spend their time helping out at the not-for-profit organisation throughout the year.
“Volunteer days are a great chance for organisations to have a bite-sized taste of volunteering, which gives staff a positive experience of community service within a friendly and welcoming environment,” he said.
“We’re appreciative of all corporate volunteers who choose to spend time at MercyCare. Many hands make light work, and within just a few hours it’s always amazing to see what the team can achieve, which is always rewarding for the staff themselves.
“In addition, having volunteers visit the Residential Aged Care facility always raises the energy level of our residents, who really enjoy the opportunity to interact with some friendly new faces.”
MercyCare is home to a vibrant team of volunteers, with new volunteers and corporate volunteers always welcome. For more information contact Anne Ward on 9442 3491.
