"Hands On" project.
I did my first volunteer shift at RIMERN (Rotary Inner Melbourne Emergency Relief Network) on Thursday and I was amazed at the volume of goods, size of the warehouse and value to recipients that this initiative provides. It's a great hands-on project and one that I hope new and not so new members will support. If you can free up a Thursday morning, do register on the roster link (through ClubRunner) and make a contribution to a great Rotary project. You will be one of four from our Club - it's a great way to get to know one another and I will definitely be back for more.
RIMERN is a multi-club Rotary project collecting household goods to donate to people in need. This is residential recycling at its very best. Clients may have experienced homelessness, domestic violence, incarceration, be escaping war or persecution or have lost their home to disaster.
