Apex Club of Renmark donates $2,800 trailer to Salvation Army

On the 19th of April 2012, The Apex Club of Renmark donated a brand new 8 x 5 trailer (with cage) to the Renmark branch of the Salvation Army.

Kevin Van Amstel form the Salvation Army was a guest speaker at a club meeting in 2011 and asked the club for a small donation to assist with the purchase of a trailer so he could better assist people in need in the Renmark community.

Instead of making a small donation, the members voted to purchase and donate a suitable trailer. President, Peter Keynes, said that the club thought that by donating a trailer, with the Apex name on it was a better than simply writing a cheque. The trailer will last for many years and is a community assett that carries our name, along with the Salvation Army.

Kevin Van Amstel said that the donation was overwhelming, and that is was terrific to receive such great support form a local service club. “The trailer will be used to collect food from the Riverland Food Bank as well as move furniture and large bulky items for Salvation Army clients.”

The donation was covered by the 2 x local newspapers, as well as WIN news.
