As bushfires continue to rage across NSW the Salvation Army has launched an appeal for contributions to its disaster relief fund.
Money donated will be used to support those affected during the bushfire crisis and for the long-term recovery of communities.
Salvation Army officers and volunteers on Thursday were helping in evacuations centres and delivering meals to evacuated residents and emergency services personnel, spokesman Major Peter Sutcliffe said.
"Long after the fires have gone down and the smoke has cleared, The Salvation Army will still be in these communities, standing side-by-side with those affected, to help them pick up the pieces and begin the long process of healing and rebuilding," he said.
The disaster relief fund will help these ongoing efforts.
