Rise presented Mary Kenney with a 20 years service pin this week to commemorate her many years of volunteering.

Celebrating volunteers

We love to celebrate our volunteers!

Volunteers play a huge role at Rise and always have done. This week’s International Volunteer Day provides a great time to acknowledge and celebrate our Rise volunteers at a range of events held across the metro area.

Special volunteering milestone

As a part of Rise’s celebrations we acknowledged a very special volunteer – Mary Kenney.

Mary has been volunteering at Rise for 20 years!

Rise Program Manager Debbie Armstead presented Mary with some lovely flowers, a 20 year service pin and some vouchers to thank her for her years of service.

Mary has been a great support to both our staff and our members at Wahroonga, one of Rise’s aged care social centres.

Mary said

I love volunteering, it makes me feel good that I’ve helped out in some way.

Mary is always happy to help in any way that is asked of her – and she does it with a lovely smile on her face.

Why not join Mary?

We need and appreciate people with all different kinds of gifts, abilities and passions.

You can do anything from driving our minibuses so people we support can enjoy days out, taking clients to medical appointments, supporting a person with a disability at one of our supported houses, or simply offering companionship at our social centres

There are heaps of volunteer opportunities at Rise so there is bound to be something that suits you!
