Red Shield Appeal 2000 Cost Of Caring $65.9 Million
Last financial year The Salvation Army spent $65.9 million on essential social, community and family welfare services.
These included family and children services, emergency and support accommodation, youth programmes, community care ministries, addiction programmes, counselling, court and prison support, employment training, family tracing, services for older people, chaplaincy and home care.
The Salvation Army needs to raise $5.8 million through the annual Red Shield Appeal to ensure these services are available for those who need them most.
"The demands on these services have increased in the past twelve months and for them to continue we need the generous support of community minded people once again", Major Tunstall said.
"The wonderful thing is, people and business never let us down", Major Tunstall said.
Major Tunstall says "people do care about each other and they do want to help make a difference".
"Dig deep and help make a difference"
