In its 60-year history, millions of lives have been impacted by the generosity of the Australian community.

“Many of those generous people are living on the Mid North Coast,” said Major Sharon Sandercock-Brown, Nambucca River Corps.

“Here is your opportunity to join us caring for our valley community once again.

“Through to Sunday 26 May we will be out and about collecting from our valley community to support the work The Salvation Army does in the valley community.”

“These funds will enable us to make a difference for those doing it tough in our valley community and for those who need a helping hand in life,” Sharon said.

“The funding is channeled directly into youth development programs, emergency welfare relief, Christmas cheer program as well as our outreach coffee van.”

Major Sharon Sandercock-Brown thanks everyone for their support of the Red Shield Appeal.

Donations are accepted up to the end of the financial year.
