CAG Community Support – The Salvation Army

Condon Associates Group are proud to be involved again in 2016 with the coordination, publicity and support for the upcoming Red Shield Appeal to be held on the weekend of May 28 and 29.

You may not be aware of some of the great work that is carried out by the Salvos, so here are some statistics of the tasks they take on in a typical year:

50,000 meals for the hungry every week

3,700+ food vouchers given to people in need every week

10,000+ contacts with young people through street outreach and drop-in centres

1,100+ women helped by domestic violence centres

500+ crisis beds per night

5,000+ families assisted in disaster affected areas

6,400+ assisted by financial councillors

11,000+ assisted by homeless services

31,000+ contacts made with job seekers by Employment Plus

I have left off many other services that will not fit into the space on this newsletter, suffice to say that the above speaks for itself.

If you and your business can assist by donating money, time or services, please feel free to contact Richard Abela at Condon Associates Group on 02 9893 9499.

Thank God for the Salvos
