Sunshine Coast Council appreciates the generous offers of assistance from the community to volunteer and donate goods and funds.
Council and Emergency services on-the-ground are currently assessing needs and are working with the necessary organisations to deliver critical and immediate support, as well as longer recovery support to re-establish homes and help communities recover.
The community’s needs are our first priority. The staff and volunteers currently working on-the-ground are highly skilled and trained. At this time, additional volunteers are not needed.
If you would like to offer assistance, please refer to the following information:
Sunshine Coast Council asks residents to please direct their offers to volunteer to Volunteering Queensland’s EV CREW online registration portal. To register your interest in volunteering please visit: https://emergencyvolunteering.com.au and Volunteering Queensland will contact you if your assistance is required.
Donations and funds
Council requests that residents wishing to donate to please register their donations through GIVIT, as unregistered donations are impacting emergency and support services on the ground.
GIVIT is the QLD Government’s official disaster charity donations partner. Residents are encouraged to register their donations through their online ‘Queensland Fires 2019 Appeal’ to best coordinate on-the-ground assistance to affected communities.
Please visit givit.org.au/disasters to donate funds, goods or services.
