‘WALK THE WALK – FOR THE HOMELESS’

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

 

The UFU thanks those on-duty and off-duty members who took the time to show their support by attending today’s launch event for ‘Walk the Walk – For the Homeless’ and also walk the first leg of the journey alongside other supporters of the cause.

 

The UFU also thanks MFB Acting Chief Officer Bruce and CFA Chief Officer Warrington for the support they provided to the Salvation Army for today’s launch event and will continue to provide for the duration of the walk.

Participation in worthy causes such as the Salvation Army’s campaign is in the spirit of firefighting and the UFU is proud to have members present and standing in solidarity with members of the Walk the Walk campaign. 

 

As per Bulletin #117, members are strongly encouraged to visit the Salvation Army’s dedicated website and take action by signing the petition and/or donating to the cause: www.walkthewalk.org.au.
