Sale Lifeline still needs volunteers

SOME wonderful people have responded to the first call a few weeks ago to help save the Lifeline Gippsland Op Shop in Sale from imminent closure.

However, more volunteers are needed to see it open each day.

The Sale shop has been facing threat of closure due to a severe shortage of volunteers. The store has had some wonderful people step up to help since our first call out which is a great start, but desperately need more to be able to open each day.

“The Sale Op Shop has been such a valuable contributor to the essential fundraising avenue for Lifeline Gippsland and the 13 11 14 crisis phone line and we absolutely want and need that to continue” Lifeline Gippsland chief executive Michelle Possingham said.

“We are seeking passionate individuals who can spare some time in their week to join our volunteer team. By contributing your time to the Op Shop, you can make a huge difference to the lives of others.

“Volunteering is such a rewarding experience. We hear so many of our volunteers talk of feeling like they are part of a family, enjoying their time together as a team in the stores, being connected to their community, and a significant and valuable sense of purpose.

“Please join us in preserving this invaluable community asset and making a positive impact in the lives of those who need it most. By volunteering at the Lifeline Gippsland Sale Op Shop, you will be part of an organisation that actively saves lives”.

No experience is required, and training is provided.

Every contribution is immensely valued and appreciated, whether you can commit to a few hours a week or dedicate more time.
