A Wagga business is calling on the community to help out a family who are struggling with the weight of a drought that is "far from over".
Lake Village Takeaway owner Kellie Roberts initially started the process in 2018 as a way to help alleviate the pressures of the crippling dry season for farmers.
But this time she has a very special cause in mind.
"I had a grandmother approach me on the weekend in tears," she said.
"Her daughter is a farmer and is fostering four young children and she is too proud to ask for help.
"I knew this was a way that I could help out."
Ms Roberts said the family have not received a cent or any donations through the drought from any organisation as they have been too busy helping out their fellow farming community.
"Despite the little rain our farmers have been blessed with the drought is still far from over," she said.
Ms Roberts said she knows if it wasn't for farmers her business would not be able to operate just like many others.
Non-perishable foods, cleaning products, toiletries and such are all welcome.
"It won't break the drought but it can show them we care," she said.
"We are Australians ... it's what we do."
Items can be dropped at the Lake Village Takeaway over the next two weeks and any businesses who wish to help are welcome to contact Ms Roberts at the store.
