The team at CapRescue all agree that volunteering brings people together, it builds communities and creates a better society for everyone.
Delivered with the support of Thiess, a proud supporter of CapRescue since 2017 and the naming rights partner for the program, the StepUp CapRescue Volunteer program has created stronger connected communities within the Capricorn Region and surrounding areas, through the engagement of volunteering.
As a direct result of Thiess’ support of the StepUp CapRescue Volunteers program, there have been many positive outcomes for community benefit. These include:
In 2021, the StepUp CapRescue Volunteer Program supported by Thiess, hit a milestone recording its highest number of volunteer hours across a single year. Volunteers at CapRescue donated over 1,230 hours of their time, which according to the current volunteering QLD wage rate, equates to over $55,000 in value for CapRescue.
This is a dramatic increase from previous years and is a credit to the ongoing partnership with Thiess, the CapRescue volunteer coordinators, and the fantastic volunteers involved in the program.
With StepUp CapRescue volunteers and support from Thiess, CapRescue is changing communities for the better, proving they are better together.
