Volunteers assist with rebuilding fences

26 June 2009

The Samaritan’s Purse fencing trailers, sponsored by the Salvation Army, continue to assist property owners rebuild fences destroyed by the Black Saturday fires.

Working in conjunction with Blaze Aid volunteers, Accenture staff spent a day out of the office, rebuilding fences on an affected property near Kinglake. The replacement of fences provides affected residents with a secure space for livestock and contributes to the recovery of local industry.

The Salvation Army has sponsored nine Samaritan’s Purse fencing trailers, working around Bendigo, Gippsland, Marysville, Kinglake and adjoining communities. Each trailer contains tools, materials and all other materials needed for fencing.

Other companies that have provided volunteers to assist with fencing projects include Optus, Ford, ANZ, The University of Melbourne and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

The Salvation Army coordinates volunteer groups to assist in areas of need. To register the interest of your group or organisation, contact Glenyse Guinan on (03) 8878 2408,
