July 20, 2011
Shoalhaven City Council will be paying tribute to the area’s charitable and welfare organisations at a special morning tea taking place at Council’s Administration Building this Saturday 23 July from 10am.
Council will host representatives from over 200 local groups and associations with Legacy, Lions Club, Breast Cancer Support Group and Shoalhaven Community Transport Service members among those attending.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Paul Green said the morning tea was a small way in which Council could express thanks to the City’s many charitable organisations.
“It is very easy for much of the good work our large number of charitable and welfare organisations provide the area to go unnoticed,” said Clr Green.
“However it is the fantastic efforts of these residents that help make the Shoalhaven such a welcoming and special place to live.
“I would like to congratulate all those tireless volunteers for working hard to ensure help for those less fortunate.”
There are an estimated 700,000 non-profit and community organisations in Australia with 5.2 million residents committing to some sort of volunteer work annually.
