Salvos seek cash for bushfire victims

IF YOU'D like to help the victims of the Kremnos bushfires, make your money count.

Salvation Army corps officer Colin Young said financial donations were preferred in times of hardship, as they could be used immediately by the people who needed it the most.

"Money makes the world go round and it has a greater effect within the context of people who are suffering," Mr Young said.

"It will be the most useful thing you can give some body."

The Salvation Army officer said the not-for-profit organisation would work with the Rural Fire Service to make sure all donations reached the right people.

Monetary donations will be taken at The Salvation Army's office at 91 Oliver St, Grafton or The Salvation Army family store on Pound St.

Tax-deductible receipts are available. Phone Mr Young on 0419 612 446 for more information.

Jacaranda Laundry on King St is willing to take donations of clothing, linen and small non-furniture items for local bushfire victims.
