Delivery of Vision Commitment and Covenant Renewal Cards
As has been previously communicated, vision commitment and covenant renewal cards will be posted to all corps and centres. We have used our existing records to estimate how many cards you will need.
We regret that the vision commitment and covenant renewal cards were not delivered at the end of February as we originally communicated. There have been logistical complications that have caused significant delays in the dispatch of the cards.
The team is working hard to ensure that the cards will be delivered to all expressions of The Salvation Army this week, and are dedicating additional resources to ensure that priority is given to our friends in remote and regional areas of Australia. We are arranging for alternative delivery and dispatch methods for areas where there may be an issue in delivering the cards on time.
If you are concerned that you won’t receive your cards in time to allow you sufficient time to prepare, or if your cards don’t arrive by Thursday March 15, please consider one of the following options to assist your preparation:
- Print-ready versions of the cards have been placed into Folder 12 of the vision booster pack at http://resources.australiaone.info/vision/ for you to organise your own printing.
- We have established a national vision hotline that you can call as needed where support teams will be available to assist you.
Vision Hotline: (03) 8878 4707
The vision hotline will be open on the following days/times in March:
9AM – 4PM AEST Tuesday 13, Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15
9AM – 8PM AEST Friday 16 and Saturday 17
