St Vincent de Paul - 131 812 or www.vinnies.org.au, or
Red Cross - 1800 811 700 or www.redcross.org.au
If you're local, donations of the following are being accepted:
- Toilet packs
- Essential new clothing
- Necessities for children and babies
- Batteries (including 9V)
- First Aid supplies
- Blankets and bedding
UPDATE: There is a register being set up of children who have been affected by the fires - all the donated quilts will be matched to a recipient via the register (based on gender and age), and delivered directly to the families in need. This will be an ongoing effort, so there is not really an accurate time frame I can give.
There is also a handmade auction being hosted by The Handmade Library - if you are interested in donating anything for the auction, you can find the Facebook group here.
Thanks so much,
