The 2015 Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal

Salvos Banner
The theme of this year’s campaign is “You can give hope where it’s needed most.” Hope means many things. Hope comes from the support of our emergency services team who pull together with the community in times of natural crisis, like bushfires or floods.

Hope comes from providing shelter to women who have experienced domestic violence. Hope comes from the practical and emotional support we give to our farming families so they have the courage to stay on the land and get back on their feet.

Donations from the Australian public help us to keep hope alive for more than one million people each year. On the weekend of 30-31 May 2015, we will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of our national fundraising Doorknock.

This year’s goal is to raise $74 million so we can continue our work. Each week we provide 100,000 meals for the hungry, 2,000 beds for the homeless, 5,000 food vouchers as well as counselling and addiction services.

Thank you for your assistance with our Red Shield Appeal fundraising campaign to help Australians in need.

Yours sincerely,

Major Bruce Harmer
Territorial Communications & Public Relations Secretary
