With the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically affecting the lives of so many Australians, our annual Red Shield Appeal is more important than ever. Batemans Bay Salvos Lieutenants Ben Knight said "For many years we have door knocked the streets of Batemans Bay and stood in shopping centres and street corners. This year has been different in a lot of ways and our Red Shield Appeal will be different too.
"Now more than ever Australians need the support of The Salvation Army and remember - every little bit helps.
"Our community in particular has suffered greatly this year - if you have any extra, can you spare some for those who go without? There are those who go without day in and day out and those who are experiencing hardship for maybe the first time. We are here for everyone in our community. "In these unprecedented times we know that our services will be in high demand as people face the financial and social fallout of this major global event.
"Right now, we are working with our local community, as we have always done, to ensure that we leave no one in need. This includes the people we have always been helping who are living in extreme hardship; people who have never needed us before the devastating impacts of this pandemic; and the people who have never felt so isolated and alone as they do right now. "We can't knock on doors this Red Shield Appeal, but our services are in greater need than ever before. Join us for the Digital Doorknock and raise funds for those in need - it only takes a few clicks!
"You can start your own fundraiser, donate to a local Salvos team of your choice or simply contribute what you can to The Salvation Army. Your help will make sure we leave no one in need this Red Shield Appeal. To support the Batemans Bay Red Shield Appeal CLICK HERE
