Rotary Inner Melbourne Emergency Relief Network Inc. (RIMERN) is a Centenary of Rotary in Australia, Community Service project, initiated by Rotary Prahran in District 9800, but now proud to call 15 Clubs from inner Melbourne active Members.
Member Rotary Clubs make a minimum annual financial commitment of $1,000 X 3 years, provide two representatives on the Management Committee and organise volunteers from both within their Clubs and their wider communities to help with the many & varied tasks needed to operate the service. Clubs that have greater capacity to contribute more per annum do so as RIMERN must pay commercial rent and outgoings and support transport and other costs.
Member Rotary Clubs organise working bees at the warehouse, 32-34 Lincoln Street, East Brunswick, and some volunteers also work remotely, liaising with donors of wanted furniture and homewares, applying for Grants and doing administration.
A number of member Clubs have welcomed new members from the ranks of RIMERN’s non-Rotarian volunteers, and everyone who has helped at the warehouse has always offered to return, as the work is worthwhile and the company friendly and fun.
RIMERN operates Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, from 9.30 until 12.30 and 12.30 to 3.30 on weekdays and 10 until 2 on Saturdays.
RIMERN is a smoke free environment. Visitors and staff are not permitted to smoke anywhere on the premises.
