Support Volunteering Geelong as we continue to deliver essential volunteer services and recovery from COVID-19 to those most in need throughout our community.

The 2021 Lend A Hand Appeal is more important than ever as behind the scenes our volunteers continue to quietly achieve and work hard to keep our communities together and safe during what has been a very challenging year.

COVID-19 is far from over and we want to continue to ensure the personal safety and the required hygiene essentials are available to all our communities.

At the height of COVID-19 lockdown, our Volunteers helped out 1000s of households by delivering food and hygiene packs (facemasks, sanitiser, disinfectant, rubber gloves etc); doing essential shopping for pharmacy items; delivering necessary items to keep families safe and together within their own homes; or just being there as someone to talk with to help reduce social isolation.

This is your chance to ensure the valuable work of Volunteering Geelong and our volunteers continue.

Help reconnect, recover and re-build our community supporting the communities we all love.
