The winter's cold hits everyone in the Bega Valley, but those in particular feeling the bite are the people who suffered losses in summer's bushfires.
In order to help those in this situation, a truckload of warm clothing, blankets and household items donated by the South Turramurra Uniting Church community arrived in Cobargo on Wednesday, transported to the town by the NSW Transport Workers' Union (TWU).
"I refer to it as grassroots relief, because it's communities helping communities and individuals helping individuals," Danielle Murphy, who is the co-coordinator of the Cobargo Bushfire Relief Centre with Chris Walters, said.
"It's really meaningful to people here to know other Australians are thinking of them and sacrificing parts of their household for them."
Ms Murphy said as it was winter those in her community who had suffered losses in the fires were freezing, some areas had frost on the ground, and people were unable to work as much as they would like on their properties because the days were so short.
"The work day is really reduced to 10 to 3 in winter," she said.
"I also think the loss of vegetation has taken away the wind barriers that would normally be in place."
The centre has many supplies such as hot water bottles, beanies and scarves that have been donated to for the season, but it can still be hard to find enough warmth.
Ms Murphy said she knew of one man who had been using a gas stove to heat the caravan he was living in, so she had provided him with a fan heater.
She said the number of donations of items to the relief centre had been slowing down, but the centre was now more focused on connecting donors to people who required physical help for the rebuilding process as well as mental health support.
In a media release, the NSW TWU stated it covered of the costs of the journey of the truck that arrived in Cobargo on Wednesday, which was provided by the Central Coast Community Shed.
"We know the Cobargo community has faced circumstances they should not have to bear," Richard Olsen, NSW state secretary, said.
"The recent fire season has shown us the commitment and bravery of local communities."
