ENLIST TO HELP
The Salvation Army is searching for collectors for its annual Red Shield Appeal week at the start of May. The appeal raises funds to support The Salvation Army’s frontline services tackling poverty in New Zealand. Support is wide-ranging and includes food and practical aid parcels, budgeting advice, social work, counselling, accommodation assistance and more. While the Army has typically used volunteers from its staff and church members, this year it is offering the public the chance to join for at least an hour. People can sign up as a collector by visiting www.salvationarmy.org.nz.
