Donations for bushfire emergency

Publish on 07 Jan 2020 All suburbs Campbelltown,

As the emergency bushfire situation continues across our region, state and the nation, there is a growing need for support and resources to assist.

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:

Australian Red Cross Disaster Recovery and Relief

Salvation Army Disaster Appeal

St Vincent de Paul Society Bushfire Appeal (NSW)

Food bank

WIRES

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.
