As part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, the Vocus Group has partnered with Telco Together to provide employees with regular corporate team based volunteering days.
In March and April 2018, teams from the Vocus offices in Perth, Sydney, Adelaide, Hobart and Melbourne have enthusiastically volunteered at a wide range of charities, including the Garden of Hope (Perth), the Exodus Foundation (Sydney), Foodbank (Hobart and Melbourne), the Salvos Market Place (Adelaide) and the Lighthouse Café (Melbourne).
While the benefit to the charities is clear, there is also a real benefit to these days for the people participating. The feedback from these events has been overwhelmingly positive:
“A great opportunity to connect with the real faces of people in need: real people with real circumstances and their stories. If you are fortunate enough to be able to help in any way – you should.”
“This is the second time that I have participated in this. It is a worthwhile experience and I will happily volunteer again next year. Good to reminded that not everyone is as fortunate and not to take this for granted.”
“It put a lot of things into perspective for me. I met some fantastic people who were just down on their luck.”
