For the last ten years, Kathy Brick has served as Palms’ State Representative in Melbourne. With all they do for Palms it’s only fair to consider the De Haas family Palms’ “force from the North”.
Andrew has been a wonderful on-call volunteer tradesperson at the café. Eddie is another who, with a call out of the blue, will come to Palms’ assistance almost immediately.
Barbara’s first engagement with Palms started after answering a 2002 advertisement in her church bulletin where we were seeking office volunteers to assist with the administration of enquiries and applications.
Volunteering for Palms did not stop when Bridgette returned and after settling the children back into school she was offering assistance again.
Returned Palms’ health professionals, who intimately understand the circumstances of volunteer placements overseas, always seem willing to assist departing volunteers to know how to manage tropical and other health issues. Many others also willingly give so much in-kind assistance to Palms.
