Call for Red Shield Appeal

Volunteer. The Salvation Army needs to mobilise more than 60,000 volunteers across Australia next weekend to help collect $8 million for the annual Red Shield Appeal.

Donations to the Red Shield Appeal ensure The Salvation Army can continue to support thousands of people experiencing crisis every day.

The Salvation Army works in the areas of greatest need including homelessness, family violence, emergency relief, addiction and disaster response.

In a typical week The Salvation Army provides 100,000 meals, 2000 beds for people experiencing homelessness, distributes up to 8000 grocery vouchers and provides refuge for 500 people fleeing abuse.

On Saturday May 27 and Sunday May 28 the Salvos will be out in local communities collecting donations for the Red Shield Appeal.

To volunteer as a collector, phone 13 SALVOS (13 72 58) or register online at
