Salvos drumming up support for Red Shield Appeal

Posted: 5am 12 May 2022

The Salvation Army Australia is looking for help from people in the Moreton Bay Region to support its work helping those in need.

Pine Rivers Corps Lieutenant Danielle Starr says The Salvos’ annual Red Shield Appeal helps fund a variety of local programs.

This year’s appeal is aiming to raise $5.4 million in Queensland and around $15,000 locally for the Pine Rivers and Caboolture Corps.

“From the generous support during last year’s Red Shield Appeal, we were able to continue our support of Men’s Shed, Community Breakfast, and help those in the Caboolture and surrounding areas with our food pantry,” Danielle says.

“We’re so grateful to the Caboolture and Pine Rivers communities, which have always rallied together and supported the Red Shield Appeal.

“This year is no different – we need the help of community members more than ever as we continue to support those who have felt the devastating impacts of the past couple of years.”

Along with The Salvation Army’s focus on Family and Domestic Violence, money raised locally this year will also help the Men’s Connect program, Craft group, Coffee and Chat, and Sunday Breakfast to continue running.
