Salvos asks for online donations for Red Shield Appeal

The Salvation Army is asking Peninsula residents to donate to its Red Shield Appeal online this year on May 23 and 24.

Captain Lesley Newton of the Umina Beach Corps said: "The Salvos are going digital this year and it's easier than ever to help us raise money for those in need.

"The money raised from the Red Shield Appeal Digital Doorknock will stay in Peninsula communities including Umina Beach, Woy Woy and Empire Bay to help locals experiencing hardship.

"We anticipate seeing some of the greatest need that we've ever seen in our 140-year history serving Australians.

"The Covid-19 crisis has financially crippled many Australians and it will take months to see the real impact it will have.

"This social support is delivered year-round and is particularly needed at Christmas when families across the Peninsula reach out to the Salvos for assistance.

"We are asking our local community to partner with us to provide the critical care needed as we face these challenging times.

"We know when the chips are down, Aussies come together and do what they can to give hope.

"This is more important than ever", said Captain Newton.

The Red Shield Appeal can be found online at

Donations to the Umina Beach Corps can be found by searching for "Peninsula".

Alternatively, supporters can create their own Digital Doorknock page and invite their friends and family to join them.
