NEVER GO IT ALONE

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - LOOKING BACK -

Suf­fer­ing comes in many forms, but so does hope.

There’s no short­age of bad news around, but whether it’s fire, flood, ad­dic­tion, fam­ily vi­o­lence or an­other cri­sis, we be­lieve no one should have to go it alone.

Statis­tics show that in a typ­i­cal week, thou­sands of Aus­tralians turn to The Sal­va­tion Army for 100,000 meals, 2000 beds and 8000 food vouch­ers for Aussies in need.

It’s vi­tal sup­port for many, and it’s only pos­si­ble be­cause of the “army be­hind the Army” – we can’t do it alone.

So right now, an amaz­ing army of “hope-givers” – ev­ery­day peo­ple from the lo­cal com­mu­nity - are sign­ing up to give us an hour or two in sup­port of our Door­knock.

Whether it is door­knock­ing, or­gan­is­ing, cater­ing, rais­ing money, or cheer­ing your friends on, there are plenty of easy, fun ways get in­volved.

You can get a group to­gether, bring the fam­ily and make a day of it col­lect­ing vi­tal funds and mak­ing a real dif­fer­ence to suf­fer­ing Aussies as you do.

Ev­ery­one is wel­come to join us on the week­end of Satur­day 28 and Sun­day 29 May, as we pull to­gether for those in cri­sis. Call 13 SALVOS (13 72 58) or reg­is­ter on­line at salvos.org.au/vol­un­teer
