Councils can send bushfire donated goods to Government warehouse

While the recent focus has been on responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NSW Government is still working to support local communities impacted by the bushfire crisis earlier this year. As part of the Government’s commitment, the NSW Disaster Recovery Office leased a warehouse at Taren Point, in Sydney’s south, to store, sort and distribute goods donated to local communities across the State. In excess of 400 pallets of donated goods including food, clothing and toys have been processed at the warehouse. The NSW Disaster Recovery Office has worked closely with GIVIT, Foodbank and Anglicare to distribute the goods to bushfire-affected residents and others in need including those in self-isolation during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Local councils still storing donated goods can transport them to the NSW Disaster Recovery Office warehouse so that they can be sorted and distributed to people in need. Councils only have to meet the cost of transporting the goods to the warehouse. The NSW Disaster Recovery Office will then sort and distribute the goods to people in need, focusing on bushfire-affected residents. Any council wishing to transport goods to the warehouse can contact NSW Disaster Recovery Office Director – Operations Coordination Dave Felton on
