Tassie urged to give gift of hope
TASMANIANS are being asked to dig deep and give generously this weekend as Salvation Army volunteers take to the streets for the annual Red Shield Appeal.
Salvos volunteers were rattling the tins at Salamanca Market yesterday to kick off the Red Shield Appeal Doorknock Weekend, which aims to raise $8 million to “give hope where it’s needed the most”.
All funds raised by the Red Shield Appeal go directly to programs that support more than one million Australians who are going through times of crisis and facing challenging personal circumstances.
Some 60,000 volunteers will be collecting donations across the country. To cater to the demand for cashless payments, hundreds of Tap & Donate Doors — which allow people to donate via their digital devices — have been rolled out.
You can also donate by phoning 13SALVOS or going to www.salvationarmy.org.au
