Each year The Salvation Army provides assistance to over one million Australians! To continue providing high quality community services, we need your help. On Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May 2017 we challenge you to partner with us in making a difference by supporting our Red Shield Appeal!

Why we need your help

Volunteers are the lifeblood of The Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal doorknock. When you volunteer, you help raise vital funds for the running of The Salvation Army’s vast network of social services. It may mean a roof to someone without a home, or education support for a child at risk of dropping out of school.

What does it involve

Being part of the Doorknock is lots of fun and the best rewards are the sense of community and the feel-good of helping others. Watch the video below and read on to find out more about what is involved:

The Red Shield Appeal involves taking around two or three hours of your time, whatever you're prepared to give really. Most people stay out for a few hours but some hardcore people like to keep collecting all day! You can collect anytime over the weekend. Life is better together! Organise a team of five if you would like to collect with friends or workmates. All volunteers are presented with a McDonalds voucher when they finish, as well as a certificate of appreciation. Many young people like to include this with their resume.

Where do I sign up

All volunteer collectors must be registered to participate in the doorknock so please click the button below to register!
