Doing It For Our Farmers to send two truck loads of goods to farmers in needs

The volunteer for Doing It For Our Farmers has been collecting goods from May after seeing first-hand how the drought was affecting families around the state. This week her biggest collection – 22 pallets of goods – will make their way to Mudgee and Cowra.

“There is a massive need out there.”

“People like that they put everyone before themselves, that’s who we want to help,”

previously 20 deliveries to drought-stricken towns like Goolagong and Wagga Wagga, where a diminished agriculture has seen many struggling to feed themselves.

Owner of Fire Service Plus, Steve Caunt, has been helping the cause by allowing the charity to store goods in his Albion Park warehouse.

“We’ve had [donated goods come in] from right down the South Coast up to Helensburgh, its endless people with their boots and trailers and coming in from everywhere,” Mr Caunt said.

Donations have come from businesses, households, schools and even philanthropic children like “Ryan” who collected his own brown box of goods. They’re then packed into crates in the warehouse before being sent on to different regions.

“It’s just got bigger and bigger and bigger,” Mr Caunt said.

"It’s been a pleasure to see the smile on their faces knowing they’ve contributed."

The giant haul was nearly postponed with a truck originally tasked to take the goods falling through last minute.

“This was a no-brainer.”
