The usual sights of raffle ticket sellers outside shops and the weekend charity sausage sizzle a no-go, Leeton's charities and community groups have to find alternatives to raise funds.
Leeton's Salvation Army corps officer Lesley Ward said getting donations to the people who need them had been difficult.
Mrs Ward said a lack of donations means using precious cash to buy something for someone in need.
"We are running low on supplies, we appreciate any donation of longlife food, blankets or warm clothes which will help us immensely," she said.
Some of events run by the Salvos have to be run with very few people due to the restrictions, and Ms Ward said the increasing number of cases found in Melbourne and Sydney meant people weren't always leaving the house even if they needed to.
One of the positives for the Salvos is, the Leeton corps made their Red Shield Appeal target.
"We really appreciate the support from Leeton for the Red Shield Appeal, all the money will go back into the Leeton community," Ms Ward said.
Nicholas Wright, president of the Rotary Club of Leeton, has said the coronavirus restrictions are a challenge but have led to some new thinking.
"They're a constraint on what we normally do, but a lot of us in Rotary feel we've become too focused on fundraising and giving away money," Mr Wright said.
Instead, the club will look at options to offer 'direct service', to assist vital community projects being delivered by other groups.
"We want to contribute and we want to participate directly," he said.
"Where service clubs can really help is with numbers."
Mr Wright said the variety of skills within his club meant that club members could help with everything from service delivery, to assisting with governance and completing paperwork.
For volunteer groups it often came down to a core group of people who often did much of the work, and that's where the club could help.
Mr Wright said there a number of key club projects which would be supported financially, but funds had been put aside to meet those obligations.
For Leeton's Can Assist, a grant from Leeton Shire Council has helped cover transport for patients heading to Wagga.
Not being able to sell raffle tickets or hold events has led the group to find alternatives.
The pandemic hasn't stopped people needing cancer treatment. and vice-president Sandra Watson said the grant brought some "breathing room" for the Can Assist.
Ms Watson said travelling to Wagga for five weeks could be expensive.
"If they've got to go to Sydney and your partner needs to find somewhere to stay... it all adds up," she said.
"We're very lucky to have had a few big fundraisers in 2019.
"Lorraine Robinson held Girls Night In and the Breast Cancer Support Group raised a lot of money. It allows us to fully help breast cancer patients in Leeton."
Ms Watson said anyone wanted to make a donation to Can Assist could contact them on 0456 657 675.
