As the digital doorknock wraps up, Cadia Valley Operations has donated $7,000 towards Orange's Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal.
Orange and Bathurst Corps Officer Kate Cathcart said she is grateful for the generous donation that will help the local community.
"We're thankful that Cadia Valley Operations had the ability and option to pledge their support towards the Salvation Army," she said.
"It is really great and inspiring to see big businesses and corporations follow through with their donations because they want to give back and sometimes they aren't recognised for their work."
"The money from Cadia will be able to support local community members in need especially during winter and the further impacts of COVID-19."
Ms Cathcart added she expects to have the total amount of the virtual doorknock appeal by next week.
"The donation from Cadia is significantly larger than previous years and is in addition to the current donations raised," she said.
"We are very grateful towards all the donations raised from local community members and businesses in this year's red shield appeal.
"Although, we have had some reprieve with the government's support, the money raised will mean we don't have to turn people away who are at a loss."
Cadia acting general manager Aaron Brannigan said Cadia was able to donate the money through its COVID-19 Community Support Fund.
"We have been a longstanding supporter of the Salvation Army, typically donating $2,000 each year towards the Red Shield Appeal, as well as supporting the Christmas Toy Drive," he said.
"Due to the impact of COVID-19 on this year's doorknock campaign, we decided to provide an additional $5,000 to support the vital work of the Salvation Army in our local community."
