ANZAC Appeal as important as ever
While our dedicated RSL volunteers are this year unable to get out in the community selling badges and collecting donations for the ANZAC Appeal, communities can still contribute to the cause.
Member for Lowan Emma Kealy encouraged people to support the appeal online, to help raise money for specialist support for current and former Australian service men and women.
“Coronavirus restrictions do not allow the band of dedicated RSL volunteers to fundraise for the ANZAC Appeal in the usual way, so this year the RSL is concentrating its fundraising efforts online,” she said.
“Every dollar donated will go to delivering assistance to those who have served our nation, helping to provide veterans with crisis accommodation, emergency financial help, employment support, physical and mental health support, and assistance with accessing pension entitlements.”
Ms Kealy said people in the electorate had generously supported the appeal year after year, and she hoped 2020 would be no different.
“While we reflect on the service of our brave men and women and commemorate Anzac Day from home on Saturday, please consider going online to make a donation to ensure the RSL can continue to support those in need,” she said.
“With your support, we will honour the sacrifices they have made for us, and the Anzac tradition of looking after each other will live on.”
Ms Kealy said people could visit anzacappeal.com.au to make a donation.
Together we can make a difference
