RIMERN Update - 16 December
A huge couple of milestones at RIMERN (Rotary Inner Melbourne Emergency Relief Network) today!
Our first order dispatched to an Afghan refugee family of 11 & two more ready to go to families of 6 people in each…. 10 more orders for Afghan families just came in.  AND today marks 6 months since we got the keys to our warehouse! What a busy, productive, amazing six months it’s been!! Thanks to all our donors, our volunteers & supporters…. We’re on our way!!
But we still need volunteers.
Volunteers can undertake a variety of roles within RIMERN from being a driver of either our collection truck or van or being the driver’s assistant – “a jockey”, working in the warehouse, providing assistance to member agencies, their case workers and their clients, answering the telephone, sorting donated household items or doing minor maintenance/repair work, where necessary on furniture. Specialist volunteers are needed to conduct whitegoods and appliance testing, electrical checking and tagging in accordance with Australian Standards requirements.
