SEE THE FULL LIST BELOW THE generous outpouring of donations to help bushfire affected communities in East Gippsland has seen so many goods and services donated, relief organisations have been unable to get items into communities. Which is why the State Government has launched a dedicated new fund where you can donate money to help communities decimated by the new year fires. The fund has been established in partnership with the Bendigo Bank Community Enterprise Foundation and the Salvation Army to provide practical support as these Victorians begin to rebuild their lives. The use of funds will help to meet the most urgent needs of local families covering the cost of everything from a grocery shop to replacing school uniforms. READ MORE: GIVE GENEROUSLY BUT BEWARE OF SCAMMERS The appeal will also help address the most immediate priorities of communities, including the rescue and rehabilitation of local wildlife. Donations to the new fund will be held in a dedicated account overseen by Pat McNamara, former Victorian Deputy Premier and Minister for Police and Emergency Services. The Government will contribute $2 million to the fund and ensuring impacted families and communities have the support they need right away. Premier Daniel Andrews said he hoped this fund will help assist families who have shown remarkable courage. “Through this fund, we’ll help make sure that at the very least they don’t have to worry about the small but vital things like putting food on the table or getting their kids to school,” Mr Andrews said.
