Thank you volunteers
Volunteers are the heart of ShelterBox Australia
Our volunteers engage with their communities and people every day and in every imaginable way – from fundraising at local events, to raising awareness at work and taking part in the action, both here in Australia and on deployment.
They share their passion for ShelterBox in their communities right across Australia, and help to ensure that no family goes without shelter after disaster and conflict.
During National Volunteer Week we look forward to recognising our volunteers amazing achievements with our Volunteer Awards.
