12 Buckets is thrilled to be announced as a finalist in the WACOSS Community Service Excellence awards for 2016. The awards are a partnership between the State Government and the WA Council of Social Service (WACOSS). WACOSS is the peak body for the community services sector.
Community Services Minister Tony Simpson said the biennial awards recognised innovative organisations in Western Australia's community services sector.
"All finalists in this year's Community Services Excellence Awards deserve to be recognised for the exceptional contribution they make to our communities," Mr Simpson said.
12 Buckets will fill a table of ten at the awards night, being held at the Hyatt Regency, Perth on May 4. Travis Fitch, CEO of 12 Buckets, said that there is a palpable air of excitement about the coming celebration evening amongst both staff and volunteers.
"Apart from the honour of being recognised for our own work in the community and especially the work of our volunteers, a night like this is especially rich because of the incredible tapestry of compassion, innovation and generosity that is put on display as the stories of all finalists are told," Mr Fitch said.
