Donations and volunteering
SA Bushfire Appeal
The South Australian government has launched the SA Bushfire Appeal to raise funds for people directly affected by bushfires in Cudlee Creek and on Kangaroo Island.
Every contribution, no matter how big or small, can make a difference to those most affected by this tragedy.
Wildlife Recovery Fund
In partnership with the Nature Foundation SA, the South Australian Government has launched the Wildlife Recovery Fund.
This fund will be used to re-establish habitat for wildlife, particularly threatened and vulnerable species, in bushfire-affected regions in South Australia.
Please do not use emergency relief centres or recovery centres as drop-off points for donations. Dealing with donations diverts staff away from helping people who need their support.
Donations of money are the best way to help disaster-affected communities recover, as this lets people buy exactly what they need and spend locally.
Donations of goods:
- often don’t match the needs of the community
- pose real challenges to store, administer, distribute and dispose of.
Consider holding a garage sale and converting the goods into money you can donate.
Ask charity groups if they can use your goods. Please ask before you donate.
