Written on the 10 May 2017 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone, Mr Kevin Conolly MP is encouraging local residents to acknowledge the efforts of community members who give their time to help others, by nominating them for the Premier's Volunteer Recognition Program.
Nominations for the program were opened today at Parliament House by the Minister responsible for volunteering, Ray Williams.
Mr Conolly said the contributions of local volunteers to the community cannot be overstated.
"Day in and day out, local residents from school students to grandparents are generously contributing to the fabric of our community or lending a hand to those who need one," Mr Conolly said.
Categories for the program include:
"I encourage residents to recognise a local who gives their time to help others by nominating them for the Premier's Volunteer Recognition Program," Mr Conolly said.
Minister Williams said the program acknowledges the efforts of everyday citizens throughout the state.
Over 2.1 million people volunteer in NSW, contributing 240 million hours of their time each year, and making our community richer for their efforts. The Premier's Volunteer Recognition Program celebrates the importance of volunteering and has recognised the hard work of more than 14,000 volunteers across NSW.
