The best way people can support flood affected communities right now, is to donate to the NSW Government’s donations management partner, GIVIT (givit.org.au/storms-and-flooding)
Since March 2022, GIVIT have distributed over $6million of items to flood impacted community members across New South Wales.
✅ GIVIT connects donors and community organisations to make sure people and communities get exactly what they need, when they need it.
✅ GIVIT has been in partnership with government since 2013 to manage offers of goods and services during disaster and emergency recovery.
✅ GIVIT’s innovative online donation management platform captures individual and corporate donations and then matches them with requests received via local government, charity, community service, school, not-for-profit, government or non-government organisations.
✅ Through GIVIT, Council is encouraging offers of help to cash and voucher donations to be spent in local businesses where possible. We are hoping that the local economy can benefit just a little bit during the recovery. As per the request of the Evacuation and Disaster support agencies.
✅GIVIT enables community led recovery and builds resilience by working with all organisations by providing exactly what they need for impacted residents.
✅ 100% of publicly donated money received by GIVIT is used to purchase essential items and services needed by people and communities impacted, in the form of vouchers to businesses.
✅ GIVIT is committed to purchasing locally wherever possible to aid the economic recovery of affected communities. GIVIT’s operational costs are covered by government contracts and corporate partners.
