Red Shield Appeal | The Salvation Army | Apr – Jun 2018

The Red Shield Appeal is The Salvation Army’s signature fundraising drive which helps fund their vast network of social and community services.

The Red Shield Appeal began in 1965 and is promoted under their most recognisable symbol – the red shield. Each year, The Salvation Army appeals to the Australian community for donations to ensure they can give hope where it is needed most through their social welfare and community service programs.

Red Shield Appeal funds help The Salvation Army deliver the following social services:

  • Family welfare assistance
  • Refuge for women and children in crisis
  • Homeless shelters
  • Youth drop-in centres and support programs
  • Emergency and disaster relief
  • Drug and alcohol rehabilitation
  • Counselling

The appeal is run over the months of April, May and June each year with the Red Shield Doorknock taking place on the last weekend in May.  This year the Red Shield Doorknock will be 26-27 May 2018.

To get involved you can set up a fundraiser in your school, workplace or sports team.
