Great news! Bushfire recovery kits have commenced distribution into East Gippsland after being generously sponsored by individuals, business and community organisations.
The kits contain much needed replacement equipment to assist East Gippsland bushfire victims who lost their homes and sheds this summer.
So far 40 kits have been sponsored, which equates to approx $24,000 worth of tools for bushfire victims to help clean up their properties.
Congratulations to Andrew Graham of Traralgon H Hardware who created the program which has now brought together charity GIVIT – Goods For Good Causes and Gippsland Lakes Complete Health who are distributing them on our behalf to those in need.
With over 300 homes and sheds lost this summer, more kits are required to be sponsored. They can be sponsored for $330, and then a fire-affected Gippslander receives $600 in hardware.
Kits can be purchased online at https://www.traralgonhardware.com.au/product/fire-recovery-toolkit/
