Across the country, relief appeals are helping ease the pain of those who have lost everything.

Among them, the St Vincent de Paul Society has a national campaign to raise funds to provide food, clothing, furniture, and utility vouchers for those experiencing hardship. Home visits will also provide much-needed friendship and compassion.

The Anglican Relief and Development Fund Australia is providing help on Australia’s east coast, and needs money for relief and to support on-the-ground pastoral care by clergy, lay volunteers and emergency chaplains.

Surplus goods “matchmaker” Good360 is seeking funds to support its distribution of brand-new surplus goods. Good360 connects businesses with Australians in need to supply such things as furniture, mattresses, home goods and other necessities.

In Victoria, the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund (GERF) – which has been around for 41 years – wants to assist fire-affected East Gippslanders.

Fund president John Mitchell said the appeal follows widespread damage.

“The funds we raise will be distributed to impacted families for discretionary use while insurance and government claims are being processed.”

In South Australia, the Shoe Boxes of Love organisation is organising small boxes of essentials for victims of fires in Queensland, SA, Victoria and NSW.

Firefighters need your help

Rural and country firefighting organisations are among those who have created fundraising pages to help with resources to let them continue to battle blazes.

Among them are members of the Rural Fire Service Association, which aims to help those on the frontlines with refreshments, clean T-shirts and hygiene items.

It’s created a fund for firefighters and aims to raise $100,000 this fire season.

Both the Bayswater Country Fire Authority and the Research CFA have put a call out for new equipment, seeking support for new “slip-on” attack vehicles that can access hard-to-reach areas.

The Grose Vale and the Bargo rural firefighting units in NSW and the Hall RFS in the ACT have been involved in recent battles to save lives and property, and have fundraisers running.
