The Salvation Army is once again holding it’s annual Red Shield Appeal. Last year, due to Covid, the well known charity had to abandon their Door Knock Appeal for the first time in 55 years.
This year, there are more ways than ever to support people doing it tough. Why not get involved by fundraising with Digital Doorknock, holding your own school or work event, or by stepping out in your local community?
Simon Creek from HHG Legal Group (and regular Weekdays guest) has been on the Salvation Army’s WA Advisory Council for the past 6 years. He discussed the upcoming Red Shield Appeal and the amazing work the Charity does in our Community.
Simon says, “It continues to stagger me, every time I go to a meeting or function to do with the Salvos; to see just how effective they are as a group after all this time and across all things:
- domestic violence
- drug and alcohol recovery,
- economic assistance to get back on your feet,
- vocational training,
- setting up people’s homes with free furniture,
The list goes on.”
“It is the most effective charity that I have ever had the privilege to be involved with.”
To make a donation, go to the Salvation Army Website.
