THOUSANDS of litres of water will be delivered to drought affected families in Bingara and Baradine after Maitland Christian School rallied the community together.
And it's all just in time for Christmas.
Maitland Christian School community relations officer James Thomson said the school community was blown away by the success of the water drop initiative.
"Our primary school coordinator, Jill Sculthorpe, is actually from Bingara and she had a real heart to help the community out there," he said.
"Jill came across The Little Juddies and the work they are doing.
"We didn't want to just pray for the farmers but wanted to put that faith into action so we decided to hold the water drop day and put the call out.
"We had an ambitious target of 500 containers of 10 litres of water."
And the school, with help from the community, smashed their target with more than five tonnes of water.
It all happened last Thursday, and saw hundreds of people from the school community come together to package the more than 5500 litres of donated water for farmers in Bingara and Baradine.
The students and teachers also dressed up as farmers, and there was a sausage sizzle to encourage the little workers.
"There are a lot of people talking about what the government should be doing, and they do need to help more. But we wanted to show the farmers as a school that we were there for them," Mr Thomson said.
"It would be fantastic to see more schools, community groups and sporting groups to take action. We need to show them that we are in their corner."
The Little Juddies, which was founded by a Hunter family of six, is also running a Christmas appeal for drought-affected communities in Bingara and Baradine.
Maitland Christian School is a drop off point for goods which can include IGA gift cards, pre-paid visa and eftpos cards, non-perishable foods, water cartridges and gifts for children.
