Storage is being sought to house donations for a Nullawarre family who tragically lost their two-year-old son and home in a fire last week.
Yajkiehn Clarke died in a fire that destroyed his family's Great Ocean Road home on March 13.
Indigenous elder Lenny Clarke, the boy's great uncle, said the family had since received an outpouring of support, including offers of clothes and white goods.
The only problem is there's nowhere to house the donations.
The Standard contacted Warrnambool's Red Cross, Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul and Lifeline, but storage could not be provided due to insufficient space.
Mr Clarke initially offered his Framlingham shed but said the distance would be difficult for charitable persons to donate.
"There are people offering to help the family re-build and if only we could direct the donations of hard goods to a person who could donate their storage space," he said.
"Knowing the Warrnambool community and surrounds, there are a lot of really good people who know the family and I'm sure they would be willing to put their hand up.
"We're talking about a young family that has lost everything - all of their worldly goods. It's a family that has to start all over again and will no doubt be feeling so lost and so sad after the loss of their lovely little boy."
Mr Clarke is a well known Indigenous leader and elder in the south-west.
He said the tragic incident had a ripple effect on the whole community.
"As I always say in my eulogies, the angel of death always seems to very close to us," he said.
"These are devastating circumstances but as I always say, time will heal. And this has always been a community that is cohesive and has stuck together. You've got to praise the local community for that."
Emergency services were called to the Great Ocean Road property following reports of a house fire just before 9.15am.
Two men, a woman, and two children were taken to hospital with smoke inhalation and have since been released.
Police said circumstances surrounding the fire were yet to be determined and investigations were ongoing.
Permission was granted by the family to name and use the photograph of Yajkiehn Clarke.
