The SCA (NSW) community can make a difference
Show your support for communities and wildlife affected by the bush fires in NSW!
SCA (NSW) members have always been generous and willing to lend a helping hand. Many of us want to help those caught up in the horrendous bushfire crisis that has unfolded over the past few weeks and continues even today.
To help you take the guesswork out of which charities to support, SCA (NSW) has set up a Go Fund Me page. Funds raised will be split between the below charities to aid in the rescue and treatment of native wildlife and livestock, support firefighters and delivering crucial support to communities.
We have also gathered the following links on topics such as reporting a wildlife rescue, travelling in a bushfire area and emergency information. If there are others you think should be included please let us know and we will add to this page.
