Donations and Volunteering
Where can I donate or volunteer to help?
It can be difficult for State and Local Governments to manage both the influx of donations and the induction of new volunteers during / after a major incident. Offers of assistance are truly appreciated, the best way to help is to support one of the great organisations who are already assisting the affected community.

The appeal will help to raise funds to support community recovery in the areas impacted by the fires. To donate visit the Mundaring Community Bank Branch or the Bendigo Bank website.
