It is with great trepidation that the MRA ACT have had to cancel the 2020 Blanket Run. This decision has not been made lightly.
With the federal and local government’s responses to COVID-19, we would be in breach of group gathering and social isolation rules, and we would be taking unnecessary risks with your health.
Despite all of this, winter doesn’t go away just because this coronavirus is here, and the homeless and disadvantaged still need your help! If you have already stocked up on blankets for donation, please contact your local Salvation Army depot to discuss safe drop-off.
The Salvation Army would however prefer financial support for this coming winter, as it could be much worse compared to previous years, with more people made homeless with the forecast economic impact. If you can, please see if you can budget a donation.
