The Salvation Army does vital work to support people affected by homelessness, family violence, substance addiction, poverty and isolation in our State and city. To support the community, Waverley College has been invited to assist with the Red Shield Appeal in the Waverley Area.
In prior years, Waverley College students have very generously volunteered their time on Sunday morning to assist in door knocking houses in the Waverley area for donations. This year the money they collect will help to assist so many desperate people, including young people their age who are cared for in the Salvation Army’s Oasis Youth Programs, located not far from our College.
Last year the Appeal was only conducted on digital platforms, but this year we are hoping to once again be in the Community directly asking people for their support for our work with vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in our community.
The support of Waverley College over so many years has been greatly appreciated, and has made a big difference to the success of the Appeal and ultimately the lives of many people.
If any students are available to volunteer to assist with this year’s Appeal please contact Ms Marie-Anne Maakrun:
