Locals have been generously donating to the men and women putting their lives on the line to save buildings and bushland from bushfires.
Somerton Public School students wrote lovely letters to firefighters and packed them in with snack packs to thank them for their hard work.
"I hope you are safe, thank you for protecting homes and animals and I hope you enjoy the snacks," one student wrote.
Two Gunnedah Fire and Rescue crew members were lucky enough to receive a letter and snack pack, and were very happy and grateful to receive them.
Meanwhile, Gunnedah woman Alicia Studdert has been placing donation buckets at various locations around Gunnedah to help out firies on the mid-north coast.
Ms Studdert is a volunteer at Green Point Rural Fire Service, and regularly visits the area ten minutes south of Forster.
The area has been severely hit with bushfires this week, burning over 30,000 hectares of bushland.
"If I can't be there at least I can help with some sort of donations. I've had quite a few donations which has been great," she said.
She said she would be driving up to the area this weekend for the first delivery, and will be dropping off "35 slabs of water and about six big bags of other stuff", all kindly donated by the people of Gunnedah.
Woolworths Gunnedah also donated three trays of fruit for the cause.
Locals can donate numerous items to the buckets at View Street Takeaway, Woolworths, Goodstart Early Learning Centre, Gunnedah Train Station and Carinya Christian School.
Ms Studdert collects the items every afternoon.
Items needed include:
- Soft drink/juice
- Paw paw ointment
- Lip balm/chapsticks
- Saline eye wash
- Toilet paper
- Terry towels/cloth nappies
- Baby wipes
- Small non-perishable items for firies to eat on the go like muesli bars, chips, biscuits etc
- Fresh fruit
- Disposable dust masks
