Salvation Army: Red Shield Appeal

May 11, 2016 Bronson Brandis-Gray No comments exist

The annual Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal is coming up soon on the 28-29th May, with doorknockers around the country seeking funds to help the Salvation Army keep refuges open, vans on the road, showers operating, and continue to provide food and assistance to Australians in need.
Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman launched the Tasmanian Red Shield Appeal last week, with a generous donation of $30,000 from the Tasmanian government, to support the wonderful programs throughout the state supporting the homeless, needy, and people in crisis. Premier Hodgman spoke to WAY FM CEO, Peter Krause recently, saying what a fantastic job the Salvation Army do to support the needs of Tasmanians doing it tough. “It’s a source of some regret for me that we (as a government) can’t do everything, and often it falls to organisations like the Salvation Army to help.” Premier Hodgman also praised the generosity of Tasmanians, who have always helped the Salvos so willingly in the past.
The Red Shield Appeal Doorknock is one of the easiest ways to help Tasmanians doing it tough. Volunteers help raise vital funds for the running of The Salvation Army’s vast network of social services that assist over one million people around Australia every year, through emergency accommodation, counselling, domestic violence support, and many, many other services.
