We can't be there for others unless you are with us first.
Emergency ready. We can't stop an emergency, but with you, we can be there to help. The fact is Salvos are called on to help over 91,000 people every year providing practical support at the coalface of an emergency.
Your help with meals, clothes and blankets is urgent. These are basic essentials that are critical on the frontline of an emergency, particularly when you have to feed and care for hundreds of people at a time. People impacted by disaster - people like Chris and Sam, farmers devastated from bushfires.
When the fires hit their area last February, Chris went to work helping protect his neighbour's property. Sam got their two littlies to safety. All of a sudden, the wind changed. The fire turned on the family home and destroyed it. Along with every shed. All the farm equipment. Took out the power and water.
Four generations of family memories and hard work wiped out in an hour. Chris and Sam were left with nothing,everything they owned and every memory was gone.
This is where your support is vital. Your donation can ensure we can be prepared and respond more effectively to help more people faster.
As Rusty and Di Lawson know only too well, "When people who care come along, and listen, and help, it offers a glimpse of hope, and all of a sudden there's light, and then that light starts to expand. It can be the difference between life and death." Rusty & Di Lawson, Salvos chaplains
