Oscar and Ester Viola, Volunteers at Seven Hills Salvos Store

 “We arrived in Australia from the Philippines in 1989.  We’ve worked hard in the retail and banking industries and have retired.”

 “Salvos Store is a very welcoming place and a great place to shop for everyday household essentials.  We are privileged to be able to help new Australians settle in having been in a similar position ourselves many years ago.”

 “There’s a warm family atmosphere here.  As a retired couple, it is useless sitting at home twiddling our thumbs.  We put our hands to good use and we make so many friends here.  We have been volunteering for three years now and we call Salvos Stores our second home.”

 “It is here we fill ourselves with love, peace, joy and enthusiasm. It rejuvenates us and makes us feel and look younger! Our friends ask us what’s the secret of looking young? We say ….. volunteering at Salvos Stores !!”
