It has been a very long week for most of us. Full of uncertainty and worry as the bushfires that surround Coffs Harbour and its communities have continued to burn with unpredictability.
The generosity and compassion shown by people this week has been nothing short of beautiful. To watch a community band together at a time of need so selflessly is heartwarming.
The Vape Dungeon would like to thank every one that has dropped into the shop and donated goods for those who have been affected. We received countless offers of refuge for people and their animals that we could call upon. The generosity and compassion shown by everyone is a credit to the community we are a part of.
As people are returning home to assess the damage and the fires are subsiding we will remain a drop off point for anyone further wishing to donate. Things of need include basic camping items such as water containers, butane camping stoves, gerry cans and cleaning materials as many effected homes are without power and water.
There are not enough words to convey the Thanks and gratitude that we all have for the NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) teams and volunteers. Without hesitation these people drop everything to go above and beyond. For hours and days on end they push on trying to save what they can.
It has been noted that a variety of "Go Fund Me" pages have formed. Although many are legitimate it would appear a few are scams. Here at The Vape Dungeon we would recommend that if you do want to donate money to do your research or donate to the NSW RFS who make the sacrifice to leave the safety of their family and home to potentially save yours.
