The Salvos are calling for community members to volunteer for the Red Shield Appeal this May.
Following the devastating impact of COVID-19 last year The Salvos are aiming to raise $32 million to fund their 2000 centres and services across Australia.
"We are seeking to recruit 10,000 'Digital Doorknockers' across the country in the leadup to the Appeal weekend on May 29 and 30," a spokesperson for the Salvo's said.
The Salvos are encouraging the community to become 'Digital Doorknockers' by creating an online fundraising page to raise money for their local Salvos.
To become a Digital Doorknockers go to https://digitaldoorknock.salvationarmy.org.au/support-salvosand create your personalised page and share it with family, friends and community members. All funds raised stay within the local community.
The Salvos are also in need of 20,000 in-person volunteers for this year's Red Shield Appeal to collect within the community. To volunteer in-person contact your local Salvos in Bega on 02 6492 3332 or Batemans Bay on 02 4472 9644.
According to The Salvation Army Australia Annual Report last year, The Salvos across Australia provided over 1 million occasions of care to those in need, supported more than 40,000 people experiencing homelessness, distributed 1.5 million meals through our homelessness services, gave over 43,000 occasions of care to those experiencing family and domestic violence, and distributed almost $100 million worth of financial assistance to people doing it tough.
