Salvation Army

To celebrate reaching one million customers, we donated $100,000 to The Salvation Army to help those who are doing it tough. This gift was given on behalf of all our customers.

The Salvation Army in Australia has promoted social justice and protected the rights of disadvantaged and marginalised people since 1880. They are the largest provider of homelessness services in Australia.

In a typical week, The Salvation Army in Australia provides approximately:

  • 100,000 meals to the hungry
  • 2,000 beds to the homeless
  • 1,000 people with assistance in finding employment
  • 500 people escaping abuse with refuge
  • 500 people with addictions to drugs, alcohol or gambling with assistance
  • Several thousand people with counselling
  • 4,000 people in the court system with chaplaincy services.

People like Jodie… Jodie’s life began to unravel when she had to become a full-time carer for her husband after he was badly injured in a car accident. With Jodie and her husband unable to earn an income to pay their mounting bills, they and their severely autistic young son soon faced the threat of homelessness.

As Jodie says: “There are so many days I do not have a single cent to my name. There’s a lot of saying ‘no’ to your children because of what you cannot give them. It’s heartbreaking”.

Families like Jodie’s need urgent help with power bills, fresh food and groceries, and financial counselling, which they receive through the Salvation Army. So to all our customers, thank you for choosing Alinta Energy – and for helping to make this $100,000 donation possible.
