Kyabram residents are urged to volunteer in support of the Salvation Armies Red Shield Appeal doorknock on May 24 and 25.

The Salvation Army is asking Kyabram district residents to give a few hours of their time to help doorknock and raise money to support the one in 20 Australians who will need help from the Salvos this year.

Salvation Army Australia is hoping to raise $10million during the doorknock weekend and Kyabram Salvation Army is asking individuals, businesses, local associations, schools and community groups to get involved.

Last year, the Salvation Army assisted more than 550000 people in their own personal crisis, with a survey of clients revealing the extent of the social and economic struggles being experienced by some Australians.

Some 28 per cent of those surveyed could not afford a substantial meal once a day, 92 per cent had little or no emergency savings, 27 per cent couldn’t afford heating or cooling and 51 per cent often went without meals each day, often in favour of their children.

Individuals or groups interested in volunteering can phone Kyabram Salvation Army Captain Gail or John Roberts on 58523875.
