Big Group Hug will next week host a volunteer information evening to share volunteer opportunities with the organisation.

The evening will provide a chance for the public to see how the operation runs, meet chief executive Bernadene Voss, and hear from a recipient of the group’s support on the impact that Big Group Hug and its volunteers have made on her life.

A range of volunteering opportunities are available with Big Group Hug, including at one of its warehouses or remotely.

Big Group Hug volunteer manager Francesca Ligabo said volunteering with the group would provide a chance to meet new people with similar interests and gain work experience, all while helping families who are doing it tough.

“By becoming a volunteer with Big Group Hug you will not only help a great cause, but you will also become part of a tight-knit and supporting community – in fact, our volunteers often refer to us as their ‘BGH family’,” she said.

“Volunteers are an invaluable resource and are involved in all aspects of our operations. We offer a range of both in-person and remote opportunities and I’m sure that you’ll find just the right fit for your skills and schedule.”

Big Group Hug is a not-for-profit organisation based in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. A key goal is ensuring that all children receive the best start in life and allowing communities the ability to give less fortunate families a ‘big group hug’ and support in times of need.

Big Group Hug also aims to support the circular economy and build a sustainable future by encouraging the upcycling, recycling, and rehoming of preloved items to reduce landfill and the environmental damage caused by waste.

Volunteering provides an opportunity for people to give back to their community while also reinforcing a personal sense of satisfaction and purpose.

Big Group Hug encourages anyone interested to bring a friend or family member to the volunteer information evening to learn about volunteering with the group and potentially sign up to make a change in the community.

The volunteer information evening will be from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on Tuesday, September 13 at Big Group Hug’s Bundoora headquarters at 5/19 Enterprise Drive.

To register for the event, people can visit events.humanitix.com/volunteer-information-night-big-group-hug.
