The Upper Hunter community is being urged to support a flood appeal launched by St Vincent de Paul Society NSW to help those affected by the heavy rains and flooding across the state.
"People have already lost their homes and further evacuations are expected before this weather event passes. Vinnies has been helping Australians in crisis for nearly 140 years, and to supply evacuees with food, clothing, household goods, and longer term recovery, we need your help," CEO Jack de Groot said.
"All donations will go towards assisting people and communities directly impacted by the floods."
The mid-north coast and much of NSW have been hard hit by the floods.
Donations can be made by calling 13 18 12, at www.vinnies.org.au/NSWFloodAppeal or at any Vinnies Shop.
