Graduates at Vinnies
A team of graduates from various departments at Woodside came together to volunteer at the Vinnies Distribution Centre in Canning Vale. The St Vincent de Paul Society, fondly known as “Vinnies”, is one of Australia’s largest and most highly regarded charities, and also operates in an additional 149 countries worldwide. They aspire for an Australia transformed by compassion and built on justice; they advocate on several pressing social justice issues such as homelessness, poverty and asylum seekers- no work of charity is foreign to them.
The St Vincent de Paul Society provides a helping hand to many West Australians through food assistance, material aid, budget advice, shelter, advocacy, friendship and support. The warehouse team were in need of aid in the lead up to Christmas, specifically with Chirstmas hampers that would be donated to families and those in need during the Christmas period, which is what the small group of Woodside graduates helped with!
