Power for the Salvos
IN an emergency the Salvation Army is always there to lend a hand, and for them to do their job a generator is an important need.
Rotary recently donated money to purchase a generator to aid their missions, and now Jeffries Builders owner Todd Jeffries has jumped on board along with Westpac to make another possible.
Mr Jeffries said he wanted to support the Salvation Army who has helped a lot ofpeople around the area.
“Hopefully I will never have to use them, but they are there if I do,” Mr Jeffries said.
Salvation Army captain Cathryn Williamson said all their emergency services work was funded by donations, and this was very important.
“It’s going to provide a light source if we go out to help at night for an accident or fires, whenever we are called upon,” Captain Williamson said.
Westpac local business banker Dominic Benz said two of their employees were auxiliary firefighters and knew the important role the Salvation Army played at emergency events.
