R U AWARE WE CARE
Well below average rain and widespread drought across the New England Northwest Region is starting to take its toll. Many farmers have sold off all but their core breeding stock and they have been left hand-feeding for months. Money is tight and debts are mounting.
By donating to the New England Northwest Drought Appeal, you show local farming families that the wider community cares.
When you make a donation, your funds will be collected by The Salvation Army and distributed directly to local landholders to help pay bills and buy essential items.
The flow-on effect of your act of kindness then sees local business boosted from spending into the local economy – this is especially true of our smaller towns and villages.
To ensure our local economy continues to flourish, we now discourage donations of pet food, non perishable foods and toiletry items. Whilst these goods are necessary family items, cash donations allow us to give farmers cash or EFTPOS cards to purchase locally.
