Drought and Well-Being Support

 

Coonamble Drought-Buster Dollars is an initiative of various local charities ensuring that drought-affected people get the help they need while still keeping money circulating through our businesses. If your income has been affected by this drought or you know someone who has, financial support is available. All you need to do is complete a nomination form or contact one of the people below.
