St Vincent de Paul has issued a call for support from people wanting to give back to the Southern Highlands community.
The charity is in need of volunteers at it shop in Bong Bong Street , Bowral.
Vinnies NSW retail area manager Christian Catabui said that after temporarily closing last year due to the pandemic, the Bowral store has reopened with COVID-safe measures in place.
"We have a lovely group of volunteers who have been able to make a positive impact in the local community," he said.
"For a lot of us, the events of the past year have highlighted the importance of community and looking out for people in need.
"Working in a Vinnies shop is a great chance to meet excellent people and you get the satisfaction that the sales are used to support people who fall on hard time."
Vinnies operates 237 retail shops throughout NSW which offer a diverse range of pre-loved items for customers to purchase.
Sales from Vinnies shops are used to fund support services offering food, clothing, financial aid, crisis accommodation and other assistance.
Volunteering requires people to donate a few hours of their time each week to help with roles including customer service, sorting donations and maintaining the day-to-day running of the shop.
