This program is run in partnership between the United Way of Lamoille County and the State of Vermont.
The State of Vermont Forest, Parks, and Recreation, in conjunction with Department of Children and Families Heating and Utility Assistance Program, donate log length wood. The wood comes from trees cut on state land in and around the Lamoille County area.
On average, 125 volunteers are needed each year for this project. Many local companies give their employees time to volunteer on this project.
In 2020, over 69 cords of firewood were provided to seniors, veterans, and families who were income-eligible. This incredible feat was made possible by many donors and 139 volunteers! Volunteers are needed to block, split, stack wood and deliver wood.
The 2021 Service Days are:
- Wednesday, September 8th from 8:30am - 3:30pm
- Saturday, September 11th from 8:30am - 3:30pm
- Saturday, October 9th from 8:30am - 3:30pm
- The event on Saturday, October 2nd has been cancelled due to rain.
