Vinnies Christmas Holiday Volunteering

Vinnies Christmas Holiday Volunteering

Can you volunteer during Christmas Holidays?

Are you looking for an opportunity to help people in need during the Christmas Holidays?

Would you like to spend time with your family, volunteering together to help the community?

Are you wanting to gain experience for a university application or CV?

Vinnies shops need short-term volunteers to help us during our busiest time of year!

The 27 Vinnies shops across the Canberra/Goulburn region are looking for volunteers to help in January. There are a variety of roles available – retail assistants, general hands (lifting and carrying!), and sorting donations.

Why volunteer?:

  • Meet wonderful people and form great new friendships
  • Gain new skills and work experience
  • Family members of different generations can volunteer together to support the community

Summer volunteers are vital to Vinnies continuing their good works.  Funds raised through the shops go to providing emergency relief to local people who call Vinnies needing help. Each year we receive over 17,000 calls for help, and the Vinnies shops provide 47% of the funds used to provide assistance.

Hours: Minimum shifts are 4 hours/ day with a minimum commitment of 20 hours in the holidays

Volunteer Period: 20/12/18 – 02/02/19 (negotiable)

During this Christmas Holiday, your energy, compassion and skills can make a real difference to those doing it tough. It will be a gift that keeps on giving.

If you are interested, please call 02 6234 7348 , email  or drop into your local Vinnies. You can find your nearest Vinnies shop by visiting

*We love volunteers of all ages, but if you’re under 14 years and 9 months you will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
