Partnership with Joblink Plus
If you look hard enough, there really are some good and uplifting stories to come out of the COVID 19 pandemic, and the partnership between Joblink Plus and Inverell Meals on Wheels is just one of them.
Joblink Plus is an organisation providing employment services and vocational training. They also support communities through direct contributions, social enterprise, and grass roots volunteering. Partnering with a diverse range of organisations with shared values, including local sporting teams, arts events, health initiatives as well as various youth and Indigenous programs.
Jack, one of Joblink Plus employees, joined our team in April this year volunteering his time along with the Joblink Plus bus to pick up meals from McLean where they are prepared, cooked and packaged by our wonderful chefs and our coordination staff. Our processes had to change due to COVID when our volunteers were not able to access McLean to pick up meals ready for delivery unless we could provide a flu vaccination certificate for every volunteer. Jack transports these meals down to the office ready for collection by our incredible team of volunteers who then deliver on to our clientele.
The support from Jack and the team at Joblink Plus has been an absolute bonus for us and something we are very grateful and thankful for.
