To protect the health and safety of our volunteers all WOW Day events have been cancelled.
We encourage the community to thank all volunteers during National Volunteer Week from Monday 18 May to Sunday 24 May 2020.
The NSW SES have launched an online campaign to celebrate our members via social media. Resources are available to download below.
National Volunteer Week is the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers.
Thanking volunteers across Australia who work all year round to protect us at our most vulnerable. Whatever the challenges we might face, bushfires, floods, storms and a global pandemic.
We thank you for saving lives and protecting communities.
Our key objectives for Thank You Campaign 2020:
- Recognise and appreciate our NSW SES volunteers.
- Awareness during National Volunteer Week (NVW) as we “Thank volunteers across Australia who work all year round to protect us at our most vulnerable. Whatever the challenges we might face, bushfires, floods, storms and a global pandemic.”
- Strong social media campaign shared publicly on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
- Encourage people and businesses to wear orange on May 20.
- Encourage use of Social Media to share “THANKS” during NVW.
