Give a few hours. Help a million people.
2016 Doorknock Dates: 28-29 May
The Red Shield Appeal Doorknock is one of the easiest ways to help change lives around Australia.
When you volunteer, you help raise vital funds for the running of The Salvation Army’s vast network of social services that assist over 1 million people around Australia every year.
We can't do what we do without your help.
What's involved in being a doorknocker?
Doorknocking for the Red Shield Appeal couldn't be any easier.
- Register as a volunteer, and then show up on your designated day to receive your fundraising kit.
- Spend just a few hours collecting by doorknocking your local community or looking after a collection bucket on a busy spot like a shopping centre, train station or street corner.
- Once you’re done, head back to the Doorknock centre to tally how much you’ve raised and deposit it back with your local Salvos rep.
We also need lots of help planning, organising and ensuring our Doorknock centres run smoothly on the day, so even if you can't doorknock there’s a way that you can get involved.
