Time to show support for Red Shield Appeal

BUNNINGS Warehouse Gladstone is teaming up with The Salvation Army this month to raise funds for its annual Red Shield Appeal.

The Red Shield Appeal is The Salvation Army's biggest annual fundraising drive.

The Salvation Army assists more than one million Australians in need each year - which works out to be around one person every 30 seconds.

In a typical week, the Salvos provide 100,000 meals, 5000 food vouchers for the hungry, 2000 beds for the homeless and refuge to 500 victims of domestic violence.

During the annual fundraiser, volunteers from The Salvation Army will be visiting local Bunnings stores to give customers the opportunity to make a donation.

The Salvation Army media director Bruce Redman is grateful for the ongoing relationship between The Salvation Army and Bunnings, and hopes to raise more funds than ever before to support the Salvo's valuable work in the community.

"By donating to The Red Shield Appeal, Gladstone residents can make a significant difference to people's lives, whether it is a local doing it tough or someone on the other side of the country, every donation helps support those who need assistance," Dr Redman said.

Bunnings Warehouse Gladstone complex manager Patrick Little encourages Gladstone residents to head down to their local Bunnings and show support for the Salvos.

"We look forward to once again supporting The Salvation Army's annual Red Shield Appeal, as it makes a huge difference to so many Australians in need," Mr Little said.
