Salvos Event Volunteers - GC50 Run Festival QLD

Community Services One off - a few hours Currumbin QLD

About this opportunity

ABOUT THE SALVATION ARMY The Salvation Army is active in communities, working to bring about lasting change for people facing hardship and injustice. Through local programs and services, Salvos provide critical support for people experiencing, or at risk of homelessness, family and domestic violence, and financial hardship. We engage with disadvantaged youth and guide people battling alcohol or other drug addictions towards a healthy lifestyle. This year we have a number of individual's running in the GC50, raising vital funds for the programs we run, to support those most in need.

GC50 EVENT VOLUNTEERS The Salvation Army is a proud charity partner of the GC50 and is supporting this great event, as well as our own fundraisers by hosting an aid station. The Salvation Army Aid Station will hand out essential nutrition and hydration to all runners at the event, as well as cheer runners on as they run to raise money for those most in need.

This is a great team-building activity, or opportunity to work with others in your local community!
