By supporting the Ulladulla Red Shield appeal you will help local people in need.
The Salvation Army's Ulladulla Mission Leader, Stephen Dunn, said the Salvos can only continue to meet the community's needs with the support of volunteers and donations from the public.
"Through the support given to us, we are able to give back to our community," he said.
"We cannot do this alone.
"We all have the opportunity to be beacons of hope for others and by partnering with the Salvos for just a few hours over the Red Shield Appeal weekend, you can give hope where it's needed most."
The Ulladulla appeal is not a doorknock but instead will have six static collection points around the district.
"I can tell people 80 per cent of what we collect will say locally," Mr Dunn said.
The rest of the funds will help The Salvation Army's vast network of services that support Australians in need.
"The Red Shield Appeal is a fun and simple way that Ulladulla residents can really make a difference in alleviating the hardship being faced by so many people, right across our nation," Mr Dunn.
"Hardship does not discriminate.
"More Australians, including Ulladulla and Milton residents, from all walks of life are turning to The Salvation Army for help and we need the public's support now to ensure we can continue to help those doing it tough."
