29th & 30th May 2021

The Blacktown Salvos are calling on the local community to volunteer with the annual Red Shield Appeal as the Salvation Army seeks to recruit 10,000 ‘Digital Doorknockers’ across the country.

Now in its 56th year, The Red Shield Appeal is The Salvos’ flagship fundraising appeal which aims to raise $32 million to fund over 2000 centres and services across Australia. In Blacktown, The Salvos are aiming to raise $20,000.00, with funds raised locally staying local.

After the devastating impact of COVID-19 in 2020, The Salvos are seeing some of the greatest need in their history, making this year’s Red Shield Appeal vitally important. The Salvos need community members to volunteer for the Red Shield Appeal this May in the Blacktown area, where all local funds raised will stay in the community. Blacktown Salvos. The Salvos are encouraging the community to become ‘Digital Doorknockers’ by creating an online fundraising page to raise money for their local Salvos.
