THE Salvation Army at Taigum launched its annual Red Shield Appeal recently with a breakfast for representatives of local schools.

Salvation Army North Brisbane Children's and Families Coordinator Steve Unicomb said the event aimed to educate local students about the services The Salvation Army provides.

"We want to tell kids what the Salvation Army is all about and the kinds of people it helps,” he said.

The breakfast was attended by school captains, principals and chaplains from Aspley State High School, Bracken Ridge State School, Bracken Ridge State High School, Norris Road State School, Nudgee College, Nundah State School, Sandgate District State High School, Taigum State School, Wavell State High School and Zillmere State School.

The event was funded through the Deagon Ward Lord Mayor's Suburban Initiative Fund.

The Salvation Army is again looking for volunteers on Brisbane's northside to get involved in the doorknock appeal on the weekend of May 27 and 28.

Mr Unicomb said volunteering for a few hours could make a significant difference in someone's life.

"By giving just a few hours of your time, you can make a meaningful difference to the lives of people doing it tough, giving hope where it's needed most,” he said.

"The money raised is put into a nationwide account and then redistributed to fund safe houses for domestic violence victims, rehabilitation programs and welfare support.”

If anyone is interested in becoming a door knocking volunteer, contact The Salvation Army at Taigum on 3865 1088 or register online at salvos.org.au/volunteer.
