Red Shield Appeal
AS we near the end of the 2015 Red Shield Appeal, I have once again been humbled by the generosity of the Australian people. The funds the community have given will be used in a way that will generate the most help and give hope where it’s most needed.
Many Australians have seen difficult times this year. The Salvation Army’s 2015 Economic and Social Impact Survey, which surveyed more than 2400 people across 262 centres, highlighted where the need is. It is estimated 2.5 million Australians live below the poverty line, including 603,000 children. The financial help of the community enables The Salvation Army to lend a hand as needed.
While thanking you for your ongoing support, we would like to remind you that you can still make a tax-deductible donation. By making a gift, you are coming alongside people in their time of need.
JOHN CONDON, The Salvation Army
