Endeavour Foundation is calling for volunteers to help ensure every mum has the chance to get a beautiful bunch of flowers this Mother’s Day.
Endeavour Foundation’s Bundaberg Social Enterprise site manager Robert Campbell said more than 70,000 colourful chrysanthemums are waiting to be picked, stripped, and put into 7,000 bunches between now and mum’s big day.
“Our employees work extremely hard to make sure the mums and caregivers of Bundaberg can receive a gorgeous bunch of Endeavour Foundation flowers each year, but we simply can’t do it without the support of the community,” Robert said.
“We need volunteers to do three different jobs: pick flowers in the field, strip leaves from them, and put them into beautiful bunches.
“We’ve got a huge job on our hands between now and the 14th of May, but as they say, ‘many hands make light work’ so please give us a call and lend your hand today.”
Volunteers are needed from now, right up until Mother’s Day itself.
Volunteers can choose the hours they want to help and elect to work individually, in a group, or with friends, family, or work groups. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and training is provided.
Anyone interested in volunteering should call Endeavour Foundation Bundaberg on 4155 5701 or email email@example.com.
Alternatively volunteers can call managers Robert or Mark directly on 0403 601 515 or 0436 654 147 respectively.
