Dig deep for Red Shield Appeal

LOCALS will benefit from all donations given to the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal in the region.

The army’s annual appeal will start with a community launch at the army’s offices in Leongatha tomorrow (Wednesday).

“The great thing is that the money that is raised here stays here,” army captain Glenn Smith said.

Donations will go towards such services as emergency relief, food, travel costs in certain circumstances, vouchers and financial counselling.

The launch will take place at the Salvation Army, 2 Long Street, Leongatha at 7pm. A light supper will be provided.

Businesses, community groups and the community are invited.

The Red Shield Appeal doorknock will be held over the weekend of May 25-26.

To volunteer, call 137258 or register online at salvationarmy.org.au.

Donate by calling 137258, online at salvationarmy.org.au, in person at any Westpac branch or Salvos Stores or by posting your cheque to PO Box 9888 in your capital city.
