A national not-for-profit organisation is giving back to drought-affected locals.
Givit drought relief manager Scott Barrett met with Gunnedah Rotary clubs and Gunnedah Chamber of Commerce on Thursday to partner in delivering drought-relief in the community.
"We work with local charities and community organisations in town and through them, we find out how to get the right things, to the right people, in the right way," Mr Barrett said.
"Anything from books, to tyres, pumps, clothing, school uniforms, meat, and groceries."
Gunnedah Rotary Club's Wendy Marsh said it was "a way to help everybody".
"The local town is given an opportunity to help themselves, and I think that's a great attitude," Mrs Marsh said.
"It'll keep the town going through this really tough drought, and lots of farmers are doing it tough. But ... small businesses, they're doing it tough too."

Chamber president Stacey Cooke said the organisations would be actively involved in the project.
"We’re walking the pavement approaching small businesses ... so we can distribute local vouchers to families so they can come in and then spend that money in the local community," Mrs Cooke said.
"It's a very easy way for people to come to us and once we know what they need specifically, like a fridge or freezer or pump or fuel vouchers, that's something that we can directly, as a charity, put on [Givit's] website."
Gunnedah mayor Jamie Chaffey has welcomed Givit's assistance as the drought continues.
"With Givit coming into the community ... this gives another option for families in need to have access to further support," Councillor Chaffey said.
Mr Barrett said Givit was looking for community groups and organisations to register on their website to be involved in the project. Locals can get in touch with the chamber or Rotary about their needs.
