Today is the final day to support the Salvation Army's Red Shield Appeal.
The charitable organisation is striving to reach $35 million dollars by the end of June 30 to help sustain more than 2000 services to Australia's vulnerable for another year.
After the onset of COVID-19 forced the local Doorknock to go digital, the Salvos are encouraging Australians families, businesses and companies who can, to donate online by midnight tonight.
Locally, the Orana Salvation Army aimed to enlist 10,000 virtual collectors to sign up and fundraise for the Red Shield Appeal Digital Doorknock last month.
Orana Salvation Army captain David Sutcliffe told ACM they are worried about the financial impact the pandemic will mentally and financially have on people.
"I think we're going to continue to see more people losing work because there's such a downturn in the economy as well," he said.
"We're very worried about the impact that's going to have on people, there were so many people we were already helping every week and those numbers are just going to continue to grow as this continues."
Salvation Army's major Bruce Harmer said it is not too late to donate to this year's Appeal.
"As the financial year ends, it is a great opportunity for individuals and businesses to make tax deductible donations, whilst supporting vulnerable Aussies at this unprecedented time," he said.
Mr Harmer said the Salvos are thankful fir the public's incredible generosity, so far.
We acknowledge that it has been a tough year for many with the ongoing drought, devastating bushfires and now with COVID-19," he said.
"However, in spite of this, we have seen the true-blue Aussie spirit of mateship and phenomenal generosity. On behalf of those we assist every day, thank you!"
