Salvation Army

While we believe it’s important to support Defence families and communities, we don’t forget about those members of the Australian Defence Force who are training on base, or serving away from family and friends.

Defence Bank is proud to be the only commercial sponsor of the Salvation Army Red Shield Defence Services Sallyman Trucks across Australia. The trucks, operated by Salvation Army workers, distribute hot and cold drinks and food, as well as physical and moral support to soldiers while deployed or on exercise. The tradition of the Sallyman Truck began in the Boer War in 1899 and is still going strong, thanks to the ongoing support of the Salvation Army – a service that is greatly appreciated by soldiers around Australia.
