Red Shield doorknock planned for May

The Salvation Army has announced that its Red Shield Appeal doorknock will take place across the Peninsula on May 25-26.

The Peninsula Zone is actively seeking volunteer collectors to take part in this year's doorknock.

"This fundraising campaign is just so important to so many of the Salvos' social services across the Central Coast," said zone chairman Mr Jackson Tumpey.

These included Oasis Youth Network, Dooralong Transformation Centre and Moneycare Financial Counselling.

"The Central Coast is home to four Salvation Army churches which each deliver a number of social programs especially tailored to meet unique community needs," Mr Tumpey said.

"These programs are also sustained by donations to the Red Shield Appeal."

"The Salvation Army is helping people find hope for a brighter future everyday but to keep doing this, they need our help," he said.

"The doorknock team is made up of dedicated collectors from organisations across the Peninsula including Brisbane Water Secondary College, our local Rotary clubs, our local Rural Fire Service teams and various other organisations who band together to support the annual Red Shield Appeal.

"As zone chairman, my job is to grow this army of volunteers so that we can collect in every pocket of the Peninsula and so I'm calling on the wider community to lend a hand.

"In the six years that I've been collecting for the Red Shield Appeal, I have loved being out in the community supporting the Salvos because the public recognise what amazing work they do.

"There's a tremendous sense of achievement in being part of this and in helping to sustain these vital services."

To register to be a volunteer doorknock or roadside collector, please call The Salvation Army Umina office on 4344 1965 or visit to register online.
