Port Macquarie resident Robyn Rawson is deeply concerned by the plight of Australian farmers at the moment.
Ms Rawson is the coordinator of the Port Macquarie, Wauchope and surrounds Doing It For Our Farmers campaign as part of the Farmers Pantry in Tamworth charity.
"We eat all their products so we really need to support them in this time of severe drought," Ms Rawson said.
Since she got on board a couple of months ago the charity has donated supplies and hampers to farmers in Wingham, Old Bar, Telegraph Point, Rollands Plains and Hannam Vale.
"The stories are horrendous, I will probably never recover from what is in my head but we have to do our bit," she said.
Ms Rawson said there are farmers who are even using "wet wipes because there is no water to shower".
She said the feedback from farmers, who don't "traditionally like to ask for help", when they receive a hamper or supplies is heartwarming.
"One of them said to me, 'You won't believe the boost it has give our confidence, just knowing people care'," she said.
"Another cried when they got the chocolate treats we sent."
On Wednesday, November 20 the wonderful women at the Port Macquarie Timeless Quilters gave Roybn Rawson and her volunteers a $500 donation of food and Christmas presents.
"I don't think I need to explain why it is necessary to be giving to our farmers, they are just doing it so tough," Timeless Quilters president Bev Hoy said.
The Timeless Quilters raised the money by selling their beautiful quilts.
The generous group also used the occasion to make a donation to Sister Majorie's Soup Kitchen which provides a free meal for up to 200 people every Tuesday in Port Macquarie.
Incredibly Sister Majorie has been running the Soup Kitchen for 22 years in Port Macquarie.
"Some of the people who come are not homeless or even poor but come along because they want someone to communicate with," she said.
