Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Business -

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.
