Bushfire Relief and Donations

The Chapter wishes to acknowledge the courageous and ongoing contribution to public safety through our various emergency and volunteer services. This festive and holiday season has been challenging to the extreme.

As fires tear through Australian communities, destroying lives, homes and animals, many are wondering what they can do to help victims and support firefighters.

There are many organisations, charities and people raising funds, and items, to donate to victims. Australians have already donated millions of dollars. 

As a community we need to support each other, especially those directly affected by the fires throughout Australia.  In Victoria, donations are being accepted by:

  • Red Cross
  • Salvation Army
  • St Vincent de Paul Society
  • Foodbank Victoria

People are being asked to donate cash, as cash donations are more effective and logistically provide far more flexibility than donations of material items or pre-loved goods.
