TasNetworks finds value in volunteering at Vinnies

Tasnetworks has a monthly roster which sees members of staff volunteer their time to help the St Vincent de Paul Society (Vinnies).

Loui’s Van is an after hours mobile food, information and support service run by Vinnies that operates across the greater Hobart area.

Each month, volunteers from TasNetworks take the van to meeting points across Hobart, delivering food and clothing to those in need.

“We have had a partnership with Vinnies for a long time, particularly around supporting the Loui’s Van initiative, which is enabling us to distribute food, clothes and blankets to some of the more vulnerable members of our society,” TasNetworks Executive of People and Transformation Renee Anderson said.

“It’s fabulous, Vinnies is such a great organisation, we have had a really close partnership with them on a number of things, our staff and our team members are really excited to be part of the volunteer program.”

Alongside volunteering, TasNetworks also donates its used equipment, including laptops and office furniture, to be used in the Vinnies offices.

TasNetworks also organise regular staff donation drives and raised more than $1000 last year for the Vinnies Christmas Toy Drive.

“We are so grateful for the resources and time TasNetworks provides to Vinnies,” Vinnies Tasmania CEO Heather Kent said.

“Their dedication to helping others is an example of how businesses can find various ways through their networks and skills to help the community.”
