To help spread some much needed cheer during this challenging time we are facilitating an opportunity for volunteers to connect via the postal service with groups of the community who are particularly isolated. First up, we will be working with Southern Cross Care at a number of their aged care residential homes to put some smiles on some dials!

Volunteers who sign up for this opportunity will have a 'Cards for Community' pack posted to their home containing 5x blank cards and a return addressed and stamped envelope. It is then up to you to get creative to decorate your cards and write some messages of support and cheer. 

This opportunity will be listed as an on-going weekly shift that runs for 2 hours, however you can bedazzle your cards when ever suits you! For each pack of cards completed, volunteers will receive 2 hours of volunteer time- this will be approved once cards have been received.
