Emergency relief services have advised that monetary donations are the best option to support the relief and recovery effort.
Donations of physical items such as clothes, furniture and food – whilst incredible tokens of kindness and generosity – are banking up causing undue strain for already stretched resources to sort and distribute. As an alternative, please consider selling surplus toys and goods and donating the proceeds.
Donations can be made to services such as:
New South Wales Rural Fire Service
Closer to home
The Wollondilly Mayors Relief Fund can also take donations to support Wollondilly residents impacted by the bushfire emergency.
