Students from Dungog High School helped boost the donations for the Dungog Division of Hunter Legacy.
Ethan Curtin-Edwards from Year 11 and Ian Rockwell in Year 12 were out and about in Dungog last Friday volunteering their time selling merchandise.
Legacy Week began in 1942 to raise awareness and funds for the families of incapacitated and deceased Veterans.
The funds raised from Legacy Week help Legacy continue to assist approximately 65,000 widow(er)s and 1,800 children and people with disabilities Australia-wide.
Legacy assists with essential services such as counselling, special housing, medical, advocacy and social support.
The Dungog branch of Hunter Legacy is in contact with around 60 widows and one dependent.
