Volunteering

Care For Hedland is a not-for-profit organisation and thus relies greatly on dedicated volunteers. We regularly hold fundraising and community-centred events and love seeing the community get involved.

Regular volunteer events

Second Saturday of every month: Recycle Day. Hedland residents can drop off their recycling to the Port Hedland Turf Club or South Hedland shopping centre car park between 8-10am.

Third Saturday of every month: Adopt-A-Spot on Hamilton road (specific location changes each time). Volunteers collect roadside litter from 7-8:30am to protect the environment and improve the appearance of the area. Gloves and bags are supplied but a hat and water bottle are recommended.

Fourth Saturday of every month: Adopt-A-Spot on Port-South road (specific location changes each time). Volunteers collect roadside litter from 7-8:30am to protect the environment and improve the appearance of the area. Gloves and bags are supplied but a hat and water bottle are recommended.
