Firewood Donation Program

In Partnership with Psalm 23 Transition Society, Our Board of Directors works to provide a half a cord of Firewood to all those in need who apply every year. Our Directors quite often deliver the Firewood personally to recipient’s doors. While we are unable to provide a whole winter’s worth of Firewood at this time, the Board hopes this firewood will help keeps recipients warm each winter.
