HELP LESS FORTUNATE AT THIS SPECIAL TIME OF THE YEAR
THOSE doing it tough this Christmas can rest a little easier knowing the Salvation Army and local community are doing their best to spread the holiday joy.
Each year almost 100,000 Aus- tralians turn to The Salvos for help during the Christmas season.
Salvation Army spokesman Bruce Redman said the organisation looked to people’s generosity throughout the Christmas period to help those who could not afford the basic essentials.
“We encourage southern suburbs locals to assist The Salvos by giving generously this year, as their assistance allows us to pro- vide food parcels, presents and other essentials to people and families in need,” Dr Redman said.
The Salvos will set up camp Bunnings Warehouse Belmont, spreading festive cheer with car- olling and band performances all while shaking their tins.
Bunnings Warehouse Belmont complex manager Carol Prime said team members were looking forward to supporting the cause.
