A few of our volunteers decided to join Andrew from The G Spot Canberra to collect donated supplies at Costco today. The donated supplies were then delivered to a warehouse where volunteers were busily making up packs for volunteer crews currently fighting fires on south coast. They filled a trailer and one of the St John vans with supplies and had plenty of people stop by for a chat.
A few of the things collected which the RFS crew members find most helpful include things like convenient snacks such as fruit cups and cheese dip and biscuit packs, as well as honey eucalyptus lollies, electrolyte drinks and individual/handy packs of self-care items such as tissues, cleansing wipes, lip balm and moisturiser.
A huge thank you to The G Spot Canberra who have been coordinating ongoing collections and deliveries to assist those in need of support, and to all the wonderful people who have donated supplies!
We are such an incredible community.
