• New trailer for Moree Salvos

Moree Salvos program manager Jason Poutawa says their current trailer is too small for its many uses. The new trailer should be in operation by June.

The wheels are in motion for Moree Salvos to buy a new trailer, thanks to a $3000 community grant. 


The trailer will be used for community projects, including transporting jumping castles and other large items to youth and children’s camps, Salvation Army program manager Jason Poutawa said.


It will also be used to transport food hampers, heavy goods, taking away rubbish from cleanups and helping families and children in the community when the need arises.


“Our current trailer is a little small for the number of things we get it to do,” Jason said “The new trailer will be used in a measured way to ensure the resource will be looked after.”


 Jason applied for a public donation from Moree Plains Shire Council. His application for $3000 was successful and the Salvos committed to matching Council dollar for dollar, buying a $7000 trailer.


“We’re in the process of ordering the new trailer, which should be delivered to us by June,” Jason said. “We’ve requested a few modifications, such as putting a case over the trailer and we’re hoping a local business will do that for us.”


Jason has been the program manager at Moree Salvos for the past seven years and works with four part-time staff who operate the Salvos store and second-hand shop in Heber Street.
