Serve for New Zealand: Anzac Day 2017 is encouraging everyone to give an hour of time to their local communities on (or before) Anzac Day in 2017, to further the shared ideals of the RSA and the University of Canterbury’s Student Volunteer Army.
Serve for New Zealand was created as a gift to the RSA to commemorate their 100th birthday and as a way for Kiwis to celebrate the legacy of service. Serve for New Zealand: Anzac Day was run as a pilot project in 2016 and the inaugural event saw over 6,600 hours pledged.
Serve for New Zealand: Anzac Day is designed to encourage everyday Kiwis to offer an hour of their time in their local communities on a day of national significance. Serve for New Zealand: Anzac Day 2017 aims to be even bigger and better, to create the greatest volunteering impact we can across the country.
Help create the greatest movement possible
You may have a current project you have organised or you could create a new project and pledge to Serve for New Zealand Anzac Day. Think about what groups need help in your community – the local school, childcare centre, Plunket, the local park, etc.
Encourage your volunteers to show they’ve supported you AND Serve for New Zealand, by pledging their time on the website.
If organising a project sounds too hard, simply go to the website and pledge an hour of your time to an existing project already listed – it’s that easy.
Serve for New Zealand: Anzac Day 2017 is a partnership between The UC Student Volunteer Army (SVA), the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services’ Association Inc. (RSA) and the University of Canterbury (UC) and is kindly supported by SEEK Volunteer.
