Port Macquarie-Hastings Council is reactivating its Graffiti Blasters Volunteer program, which has been in hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions - and we need your help.
Our beautiful region has seen an increase in graffiti vandalism recently, and this social problem is an issue we need to fight against together.
I encourage anyone who is enthusiastic about volunteering, and is passionate about reducing graffiti in our community, to join our Graffiti Blasters Program.
Volunteering for this program is a great way to make meaningful use of your time and skills, while contributing to creating a safer environment for all.
It also helps promote a sense of belonging and general wellbeing, avenues for community participation, social connectedness and engagement.
Within the Graffiti Blaster's role volunteers may need to do tasks such as remove graffiti using a high-pressure hose and apply cleaning products onto surfaces. Other manual-based activities may include painting, sanding, scrubbing, wiping, bending, twisting and lifting.
The program will be conducted Monday to Friday, from 9am to noon. Volunteers will operate on a rotating roster, working in pairs.
Council will provide a training and induction process for all successful applicants which will need to be undertaken before commencing as a Graffiti Blaster Volunteer.
