Thank God for the Salvos

By Riverine Herald

HOPE where it’s needed most.

That’s this year’s slogan for the Red Shield Appeal.

And it perfectly sums up what the Salvation Army is all about — bringing hope and light to the darkest of circumstances.

The Salvation Army provides more than $20,000 worth of assistance to the Echuca-Moama region each year including medication, food vouchers and aid through the op shop.

Volunteers will be out across town in the coming weeks, raising money for this vital cause.

The target for this year’s Red Shield Appeal is $12,000.

But they’ll need your help to make it.

There will be a sausage sizzle all day at Bunnings on Friday, May 25.

Static collection points will also be set up at Bunnings on May 26 and 27 from 10am to 4pm and Echuca Woolworths and Moama Marketplace from May 24 to 27 (10am to 4pm).

There will also be a traffic collection point on May 27 at the corner of High St and Ogilvie Ave.

Or you can donate at the Salvation Army hall at 50 Sturt St or the op shop at 119 Ogilvie Ave.

For information, call Sonia Edwards on 0427 666 155.
