Local businesses have jumped on board to support the BlazeAid volunteers currently setting up camp in Kingaroy.
The Kingaroy Chamber of Commerce and Industry has donated $1000 towards food and fuel for the camp.
Chamber president Rob Fitz-Herbert said on Thursday vouchers for $500 for fuel from Westlink Petroleum and $500 for fruit and vegetables from Anderssons Fruit Market had been given to camp co-ordinator John Lillico.
Rob said Danny Kreutzer, from Westlink Petroleum, had also added an extra $500 worth of vouchers when he heard about the volunteer project.
Abigail Andersson, from Anderssons Fruit Market, said the business was also working in with the Kingaroy QCWA to provide support for the rostered meals.
On Wednesday, South Burnett Mayor Keith Campbell handed over $1000 worth of SupaIGA vouchers on behalf of Council to Mr Lillico to be used to purchase groceries.
