South West community members are being encouraged to support the Salvation Army by participating in the digital doorknock for this year’s Red Shield Appeal.

The coronavirus crisis means the Salvation Army’s biggest annual fundraising effort will look slightly different this year with shopping centre collections and door-knocking not possible.

South West MLC Adele Farina is encouraging everyone to donate what they can and help support people within the South West.

“By donating to the Red Shield appeal, you will help the Salvos to continue to support those in need with food hampers, blankets and warm clothing for the coming winter months, assistance with paying bills, emergency housing, counselling and financial management,” she said.

“Hardship does not discriminate, more people from all walks of life are turning to the Salvos for help.”
