With emergency supplies now at capacity, residents have been urged to turn their attention to Taree Lions Club's bushfire appeal.
Lions club president George Greaves said cash donations will ensure specific needs of bushfire victims can be met.
"The need is for cash so it can be directed to prioritised needs," George said.
"Water and farmers need for fodder and stock fencing are also important.
"Although we are extremely thankful for the generosity and love shown - unfortunately, carloads and truckloads donating goods that have not been approved in advance can create challenges for those on the ground in the Manning Valley volunteering to support the recovery process."
Donations to the appeal can be made at www.gofundme.com/f/midcoast-bush-fire-relief?utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=customer&utm_campaign=p_lico+share-sheet
Since its launch, the appeal has ticked over $54,000.
"The Barrington Coast region and especially the Manning Valley have experienced an unprecedented catastrophe that will need massive funding to recover from," club member Phil Grisold said.
"The consequences of this tragedy although heart wrenching, has initiated a call to action by many locals, and a community spirit that could be generational in its effect if it can be harnessed properly."
