South West MLC Adele Farina visited the Salvation Army Busselton Corp to recognise the contribution they make to the community and hear firsthand about the demand for their services in Busselton.
Ms Farina said the Busselton Corp offered a range of vital services and community programs that made a real difference to people in the community experiencing isolation, financial hardship and disadvantage.
“Demand for emergency relief in the Busselton area has remained strong over the last few years, with families and individuals seeking support to help make ends meet,” she said.
“Wages have not kept pace with inflation and rising household costs, more families and individuals are struggling financially and needing assistance from organisations such as the Salvos.
“The Salvos work closely with individuals seeking help to identify the factors that have contributed to their current situation and provide food and other support services to ensure the best outcomes for those seeking help.”
Ms Farina said while the Salvo helped families and people in Busselton get back on their feet, they also needed our help so they could continue to help those in need.
“The Salvos rely on the generosity of the community to help them help those in need.
“Whether it is a cash donation of non-perishable food items, clothing or blankets, the Salvos will put it to good use helping those less fortunate and delivering critical support services.
“I have made a donation to the Salvation Army Busselton Corp and I encourage the community to get behind the Salvos by making a donation, no donation is too small.”
