Volunteering Ventures

Volunteering Ventures

Volunteering Ventures are one off volunteering opportunities in a range of areas, from health to young people to the environment. Every Venture allows you to volunteer alongside a friend, meet other Murdoch students and accomplish something meaningful, all without the commitment normally required from volunteering. If you would like to try something new in a friendly environment, while also helping out a worthy cause, this is something for you!

Home for Dinner – Ronald McDonald House
A home cooked meal is often taken for granted which is why
Murdoch Guild Volunteering will be cooking a scrumptious
dinner for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House.
Parents often return to the House after a long day by their
child’s hospital bed and cooking a meal may be the
last thing on their minds. That’s where YOU can help!!
We will be helping in the commercial kitchen with the chef
who will provide professional catering support to ensure we deliver
the best meal ever! After dinner is served, we have the opportunity
to sit down and spend time getting to know the families
plus enjoy a tour of the extraordinary home away from home for many.
