PLEDGES of food, accommodation and services have all come forward from members of the eastern Riverina during the NSW and Victorian fires.
Members of the many Rural Fire Services (RFS) branches in the region have worked around the clock on the Green Valley, Talmalmo blaze, and the now joining Dunns Road fire.
In the Henty region members of the football and netball clubs and Henty Fire and Rescue 322 along with 322 Merric Merric and Bucki RFS joined forces to gather donations of food and water.
Several pallets from the region had already been delivered to Lavington Fire Station for distribution to the fire affected areas.
Meanwhile, to the north at The Rock members of the community rallied together to make sandwiches and provide bottled water and care packages for those in need.
The story at Uranquinty was also similar with many donations made to help those in fire-affected areas.
Donations were collected in Lockhart too and in response to the recent RFS request for donations of money rather than goods Steve's Bakery and Cafe announced via social media that $1 from each coffee sold would be donated to NSW Rural Fire Service and Brigades Donations Fund.
The RFS has confirmed it could take weeks before the megafire in the Snowy Valley, eastern Riverina and north east Victoria is brought under control,
The Dunns Road, East Ournie Creek, Green Valley, Talmalmo, Mount Youngal, Doubtful Gap and Adaminaby Complex bushfires merged on Friday night, with combined area of more than 600,000 hectares.
