Celebrating it's 15 year anniversary in November 2020, the Firewood Ministry is a YEAR ROUND ministry aimed to providing warmth to those in need. Richard Reeves is the leader for this ministry, which began in 2005 when he acquired family land and felt led to chop the wood on the land for those in need. One family in need led to another family, which led to another family, which led to providing 80 persons with firewood in the first year. In 2018, 268 loads of firewood was sent to the community, and 2013 holds the record for 356 loads. Volunteers are ALWAYS needed, year round, to assist with chopping and splitting wood, and delivery of firewood.
GET IN TOUCH WITH THIS MINISTRY
An hour, three hours, or recurring volunteers are always needed. Splitting of wood, and delivery is a year-round effort, not just winter time. If you can spare time to volunteer, contact Richard Reeves below via phone.
Splitting and loading wood is hard work! We have a goal to purchase equipment including a TRACO and conveyor to make the process easier for volunteers. Funds also go towards purchasing logs, gas, and oil.
