Here are some stories about the work our volunteers have been doing with community organisations to help their efforts go further.
Becoming part of the Wellington HELP whanau

For NZ on On Air Communications Manager Allanah Kalafatelis, volunteering through the Community Comms Collective allows her to use her skills and experience to make a difference. “It’s rewarding to feel that I have helped in some small way.
