Items and goods from a second community drive in Armidale for the firies and fire effected members of the Ebor community will be delivered early next week.
Allingham's Removals and Storage delivered about six-and-a-half tons of perishables and non-perishables to the Dorrego Evacuation Centre from the Armidale community on Wednesday afternoon.
It was met by volunteers who unloaded the container in 45 minutes. Now Allingham's manager Jeff Cameron thought Ebor community also needed a little help.
He said bottled drinking water was an important item in the Dorrego container, which held more than six tons and about 37 cubic metres of goods.
"That was an asset that will keep everyone hydrated. We've got some hot days ahead, the conditions are going to turn again," he said.
"Because these people out fighting the fires are the real heroes, what we're doing is just a drop in the ocean compared to what they're doing.
"It would be a couple of years back now, but we almost lost our house and if it hadn't been for the firies we probably would have."
He said they had plenty of empty containers in the yard and if they could fill them they would.
Local resident and collection assistant Lawrence Ramage said Dorrego's truck load included about three ton of bottled water.
"There was probably another ton of soft drinks on board, toiletry items, non-perishables and I would just like to acknowledge Coles, Woolworths, Professionals, Town and Country and many, many other people.
"All that, for Dorrego, was organised and loaded in 36 hours, the community response was fantastic.
"One lady went to K Mart and bought brand new clothing, and I reckon we unloaded about 20 bags from out of her car."
Mr Ramage said the next load was going to Ebor, and at the moment non-perishables dropped into Allingham's would be greatly appreciated.
Donations for Ebor can be delivered to the Allingham's depot at 49 Bundarra Road.
