THE 2013 RED SHIELD APPEAL
The 2013 Salvation Army Red Shield
doorknock appeal is being held on Saturday, 25th May and Sunday
26th May. The national fund raising target is $81 million which
is needed to cover the staggering services the Salvos provide to
those most in need in our community.
Over one million Australians are
helped by The Salvation Army every year. In any given week the
Salvos provide more than 2,000 beds for the homeless, more than
100,000 meals for the hungry. The list goes on and on, helping
the elderly, the addicted, the abused and the unemployed etc.
In a recent survey, 92% of the adult
Australian public describe themselves as being "favourably
disposed" to the Salvos. With such a strong support it makes the
doorknock appeal work easy as well as being especially
The Rotary Club of Galston has
coordinated the appeal in the Galston and Arcadia area for many
years, supported by local residents and high school students. We
need persons to doorknock, act as drivers and team leaders. Can
you find 2, 3 or 4 hours to help and support one of Australia’s
leading charities? In addition to doorknocking there are
opportunities to collect at static points such as The Galston
Oval football on the Saturday and at Berowra Waters Ferry.
We are grateful to The Galston Club
who once again will be providing us with accommodation to
administer the collection on the Sunday morning from 8.30am and
a hamburger lunch and refreshments for the helpers.
We would really appreciate any help.
