Groups and community members in the MIA have been doing their parts to help support victims of bushfires across the state as well as those on the front-lines fighting the fires.
Darlington Point Sports Club will be hosting a music concert on Sunday to raise funds for those fighting the fires.
The theme for the concert is 'Australia Stands for Mate-ship' and organiser behind the event Lenny Teelow said the concert aims to pay back those who have worked tirelessly to defend communities from the fires.
"We try to do what we can," Mr Teelow said.
"All the proceeds will go towards - well I like to call them heroes - the fireman and of course others that have lost stuff in the fires.
"We get in and help those heroes... they're just so great, they lay down their lives literally [to help]."
Mr Teelow said the theme for the concert reflects a core value of Australians.
"We look out for our own," Mr Teelow said.
"When the cry for help goes out, we don't let them stand alone."
The event will feature bush poetry from Harry Bestwick as well as musical performances from local group Recycled and Whitton pair Bill and Suzie Bevan and Mr Teelow himself, with a sausage sizzle and a raffle also planned.
Entry is $10 and the concert will kick off at 12.30pm.
In Griffith, staff at the Base Hospital have been doing their part to help, hosting an internal cook-out as well as collecting food and goods to be donated to fire-ravaged areas.
The cook-out was put forward by hospital workers and saw butter chicken and rice on the menu for those working at the hospital, which raised close to $1600 for the RFS.
Hospital general manager Greg Brylski said staff were determined to help however they could.
"There's been quite a large effort and a large out-pour from all of the staff," Mr Brylski said.
"The whole of the Griffith Base Hospital staff have really rallied together which is really impressive to see, they've rallied not just for their fellow man, they've also rallied for the environment and for nature that has been destroyed."
"It really shows the philosophy the hospital has - that kindness really does work here - so through everything we do, from actually seeing the patients coming into the hospital but also supporting the wider community, it's huge acts of kindness - not just from the staff but their family members as well."
Mr Brylski said the hospital wanted to do their own part alongside the support the Murrumbidgee Local Health District was providing to bush-fire ravaged areas, particularly in Batlow.
Chairwoman of the hospital's staff advisory committee Fiona McKern also opted to help support bushfire victims in her own way, constructing 156 pouches of various shapes and styles as part of the Animal Rescue Craft Guild's efforts to help wildlife injured in the fires.
She said she was "really proud" of the efforts by hospital staff and noted the willingness of those working in the hospital to join in and contribute.
"It's very heartwarming," Ms McKern said.
"Everybody has supported [the initiatives] through money and their donations. It's really nice to come together like a work family and support people's ideas and all these efforts have made a significant difference."
Junior students from the Murrumbidgee Regional High School Griffith site have also been digging deep to help raise funds, with the student representative council organising a mufti-day at the end of the last school year, raising $213 for the RFS.
Mr Brylski said the compassion shown by the wider Griffith community can only help showcase why the city is a desirable place to live and work.
"It just goes to show that Griffith really is a great place to live and work," Mr Brylski said.
"This is the exactly the kind of reasons why people would want to move here and work with us because we are a very kind hospital and place to live as well."
