Donations for the local community
A financial donation is the most helpful way that you can contribute to disaster-affected communities. It helps those impacted to buy exactly what they need and spend the funds within their local community.
If you would like to help those affected by the Yorketown fire, financial donations can be made online through St Vincent de Paul Society. All donations are tax deductible, with the money going directly to those affected.
The donation of goods is not encouraged as it can pose challenges to administer, store, distribute and dispose of the goods. It also might not meet the needs of people affected by the disaster.
