Major Brett Gallagher, from The Salvation Army Port Macquarie, said volunteers were needed to help the charity reach its $10 million target nationwide to maintain services for 12 months.
“If someone can volunteer for two to three hours on Sunday we’d really appreciate
it and they can go away knowing they’ve helped someone in need,” Mr Gallagher
Appeals Director for the charity Jeff Winterburn said the charity was seeing more clients than ever before with high levels of stress, anxiety and depression.
Major Winterburn said more than 100,000 collectors were needed.
“The Red Shield Appeal is vital in enabling us to continue our frontline services,” he said.
“The clients we see are some of society’s most vulnerable people and are coming to us with increasingly complex needs, particularly with financial strain from housing affordability and the increased cost of living.
“More than ever, we need the support of the Australian community to help fund our social programs.”
