CatholicCare Parramatta partners with Optus RockCorps
CatholicCare Social Services was thrilled and grateful to be one of the community groups who benefited from Optus RockCorps. Please click here to check their website.
Optus RockCorps is an inspiring program which aims to engage, empower and celebrate youth giving back, by rewarding young people who donate 4 hours of their time for volunteering.
On Wednesday, February 27 around 50 volunteers gathered at CCSS Catherine Villa – our service which provides 24 hour accommodation for homeless young mothers and their children.
Volunteers spruced up the garden, interior and play areas, to make Catherine Villa all the more bright and comfortable place for the women and children.
For more information on how you can volunteer throughout the year or support Catherine Villa and our other services such as Blacktown Neighbour Aid, Project Elizabeth, the Emmaus Program, Aboriginal Catholic Services and the All Saints of Africa Centre, click here to send us an email or call 02 9933 0222.
