One way that the Blue Mountains Salvos love our communities is by providing a number of quality second-hand stores where people can purchase pre-loved goods for a reasonable price.
We stock clothing, books, bric-a-brac, kitchenware, DVDs, CD's, records, toys, jewellery, handbags, shoes, furniture, commercial rags, linen, beds, craft items and electrical items. Donations of quality goods are always welcome.
Our stores rely on volunteer staff. We have volunteer positions for truck drivers, sorting staff, salespersons, rag cutters, delivery persons, qualified electrical testers, groundspersons, gardeners, and cleaners.
Do you want to serve your community by volunteering some time? Contact us at either our Springwood, Katoomba or Lithgow store and ask to speak to the manager today.
Volunteering for The Breakfast Club can be very rewarding but it also holds some special challenges.
We are very grateful to our volunteers who are the backbone of our service and for the generous donations provided by members of the community. It is this ongoing support that allows us to keep 'Breakfast Club' operating. If you would be interested in supporting our community in this way, feel free to Contact Us at Katoomba Salvos.
The aim of the Savlation Army Emergency Services (SAES) is to support people and communities at their point of need, and to ensure emergency service workers and volunteers are also catered for.
Whether it's a natural disaster like a cyclone, flood, bushfire or earthquake, or an incident such as a transport accident, structure fire or missing person search, SAES teams will be on the ground supporting those on the frontline of the emergency.
While SAES teams are one of the first groups of Salvos to respond to a disaster, this is closely followed by more Salvos who work with communities through the recovery process.
The Salvation Army has developed a strong relationship with state governments so as to provide a coordinated response to ensure the best service delivery possible is achieved.
SAES teams may be tasked to work in evacuation centres from small community halls to major city showgrounds. They may be in the field supporting emergency service agencies from built-up areas to farmer’s paddocks and getting alongside the community as the clean-up begins.
The SAES is run by volunteers and we are always looking for new recruits. The training is easy, the environment is friendly and knowing you have played a part in helping others is priceless. Please contact us if you want to know more.
