    Fortnightly VNews - update on SA Bushfire emergency recovery volunteers. VSA&NT have deployed over 50 volunteers in the recovery phase with organisations like Team Rubicon and Habitat for Humanity. These volunteers have committed over 980 hours, which is the wage equivalent of around $42,160. This, when added to all the volunteer hours from those working on bushfire recovery with other organisations, is remarkable. Thank you to everyone for helping out in this time of need. Please continue to share what we are doing through social media by tagging @volunteeringsant and using hashtags #SAvolunteer and #SAbushfires.
