Previous posts

The Salvation Army’s annual Red Shield Appeal, a major fundraising event, was launched this year by Daniel Mookhey, MLC Member of the Legislative Council – NSW and NSW Treasurer along with Commissioner Miriam Gluyas, Territorial Commander of The Salvation Army.

The event, marking its 60th year, aims to raise $38 million to support vital services across Australia, including those for multicultural communities.

The launch was attended by business, community, and media leaders from diverse backgrounds, representing over 30 languages. The Salvation Army, which has been supporting multicultural communities for 140 years, used this event to strengthen connections with these communities and acknowledge their contributions.

Daniel Mookhey expressed pride in Australia’s multicultural communities, emphasising their significant role in the country’s social and economic fabric. He highlighted The Salvation Army’s role as an inclusive organisation dedicated to helping everyone in need.
