Salvation Army branches in the Mitchell Shire have faced many changes in the past year but are reminding the community they are committed to supporting them through hardship.

At the start of the year, Salvation Army branches in Broadford and Seymour came together under the new banner of ‘Mitchell Shire Salvos’.

Broadford’s already-established Thrift Store has recently undergone changes including a move to a different building and is now co-located with the Salvation Army Church on the corner of Powlett and Gavan streets.

Mitchell Shire Salvation Army corps officer Lauren Kirkham said all funds raised through the thrift shops in Seymour and Broadford would continue to go back into the community.

“We have heard from the local community that the thrift shop is important to them,” she said.

“Thrift shops provide an opportunity for social connection, recycling and vital fundraising for supporting those doing it tough.

“The local Salvos are grateful for the continuing support of the community as we do what we can to share the love of Jesus with those who need it most.”

To continue to provide support to the community, the Salvation Army is calling for community members to volunteer or support their local Salvation Army in any way they can.

“We’re so grateful to the local community who have always rallied together and supported the Salvos year after year,” Ms Kirkham said.

“We cannot do what we do without you. If you have the means, please consider becoming a volunteer or supporting our work by shopping at our thrift shop.

“Your generosity and support will help us to show the community there is good in the world and a reason to hope.”
