You can give hope where it’s needed most this Christmas at Drakes.
Christmas Day – it’s a day where most of us get to relax and enjoy time with our family and friends. We give and receive presents, we toast to the year that’s been and eat food in abundance.
Imagine how bleak Christmas would be without this. Unfortunately, this is a stark reality for many Australian families who have fallen on hard times; but there is a way to help! Buy a $2 Christmas Tree token in any Drakes Queensland store and help the Salvos give hope this Christmas. All proceeds from the sales of the Drakes Christmas Tree will be proudly donated to the Queensland Salvation Army.
More About the Salvation Army:
On the 5th September 1880, Edward Saunders and John Gore led the first Salvation Army meeting in Australia from the back of a greengrocer’s cart in Adelaide’s Botanic Park. When Gore said, “If there’s a man here who hasn’t had a square meal today, let him come home to tea with me,” little did he realise that within a century, The Salvation Army would feed hundreds of thousands of Australians each year. Fast forward to 2019 and the Salvos work across Australia – in cities, country towns and rural communities – and touches every demographic and age group. They’re involved in national issues while also bringing hope to people who may be experiencing hardship or injustice.
