Council joins 2020 Digital Doorknock

19th May 2020
Council has joined the Derwent Valley Salvos for this years Digital Doorknock to help raise money to fund vital services for people in need all over Australia.

Council has joined the Derwent Valley Salvos for this year's Digital Doorknock to help raise money to fund vital services for people in need all over Australia. This year there are even more people who will need The Salvation Army’s support.

Right now, The Salvos are working with our local community, as they have always done, to ensure that no one is left in need. This includes people living in extreme hardship; people who have never needed them before the devastating impacts of this pandemic; and the people who have never felt so isolated and alone as they do right now.

The Salvation Army relies on fundraising to continue their work. With Op Shops closed and traditional donation collections impossible under COVID-19 restrictions, they are placing their hopes on the ‘Digital Doorknock’ campaign.

Please give generously and partner with us, we can’t do this without you.
