Donations for Bushfires

Tuesday 22nd of January 2013

Thank you for thinking of the people who have been affected by the Warrumbungle bushfires. Your interest and kindness is much appreciated.

At the moment there is no more need for donated second hand goods and unfortunately local agencies have no storage space left to receive items.

If we identify any particular needs we may launch a targeted appeal for specific items, so please watch out for that. 

If you have goods that you wanted to donate, consider selling these and donating the money instead. There are a number of ways you may be able to turn goods into money, such as;


  • Holding a social event with your friends to auction off items you have to give away
  • Holding a garage sale.


Donating money is the best and most effective means of supporting those affected as money can be directed in ways that can best meet individual needs. 


The Warrumbungle Shire Council has established a public appeal for donations to assist people who have suffered as a result of the Wambelong and nearby Redbank fires.

You can make a donation to the Warrumbungle Shire Mayor’s Bushfire Appeal through the Commonwealth Bank:

Account Name: Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor’s Bushfire Appeal
BSB: 062-524
Account: 10133579
Bank: Commonwealth Bank
