Large hampers donated for bushfire relief
Umina Beach Public School has created 10 large hampers for and donated several other items to the Taree Lions Club to deliver bushfire relief to families on the Mid-North Coast.
Principal Ms Lyn Davis said: "We collected enough items to make 10 hampers of groceries and toiletries.
"We also made large boxes of baby wipes and nappies, pet food, cleaning products and even a box of back to school items that will go to Bobin Public School to help recover from their bushfire losses.
"Farm families in the area have been on hard times because of the drought and now it's so much harder for those also affected by the fires.
"They have been buying water and feed for their dairy and beef cows and are now making difficult decisions whether to sell their stock, as they cannot afford to feed and water them.
"We've been told there were lots of tears and very grateful farmers who humbly picked up these donations," Ms Davis said.
