Main Function / Purpose

Vinnies ‘Outer Eastern Conference’ is home to youth passionate about social justice activities. Currently the group is buzzing, with 10-12 regular volunteers, many shenanigans, lots of positive impacts being had and some serious passion for serving others floating in the air!! Anyone between the ages of 16-35 is warmly welcome to come on down! We meet normally once a fortnight.

We run the following activities:

  • Home visitations (visiting disadvantaged families in the area in real need of basic necessities such us food, furniture etc.)
  • Kids activities (we run fun activities like cooking competitions, going to dark zone etc. for kids in the area
  • Soup vans (those wishing to visit the streets of Melbourne on Soup Vans also have this opportunity through St. Vinnies)
  • Fundraising Events (St. Vinnies runs many fundraising events to continually be able to fund its works)
  • Personal activities (there is huge scope for you to come up with your own ideas to have a positive impact on the community!!)

For further information please send through an email, or to come to the next meeting!!!
