Christmas: Bag of hope

14,000 people seek food relief in Australia each month but are unable to be assisted and go hungry. Sadly 40% of these people are children.

The Salvation Army through the Bag of Hope campaign wants to help Tasmanian families that are in urgent need this Christmas. 

A food drive is an easy way to collect non-perishable food items for The Salvation Army to distribute to those most in need. We invite corporations, small businesses, schools, community groups, churches and others to get involved and help transform our community this Christmas.
