Frank's Story

Every Thursday, for the past 40 years, one familiar, friendly face has been greeting people in need on the streets - Vinnies Soup Van volunteer, Frank Mullins.

There is no greater personal reward than helping another human being. Frank Mullins has volunteered with Vinnies Victoria for 40 years and travels over 110km each way into Melbourne to see tangible action in support of the homeless community. 

At 77 years of age, Frank realises that he cannot volunteer forever, but wants to see others continue to drive the initiative. It's a program that has defined his identity and he wants to see others continue to support those in need.
