The Working Process…

The Greene County Firewood Ministry provides firewood to residents of Greene County who don’t have the means or physical ability to acquire it for themselves.  There is no charge to those receiving the firewood.  The “Firewood Ministry” works hand-in-hand with the Food Bank as they administer the “Coal Fund” each year to screen for qualified recipients.  When a request is made to the Food Bank for heating assistance (in the form of firewood) the Food Bank will generate a delivery ticket for the Firewood Ministry to act upon.  Any recipient qualified thru the Food Bank can receive (2) loads of Firewood.  The Firewood Ministry may, at its discretion, deliver more than the initial (2) loads of firewood to any recipient.  We have several recipients who are elderly/low income/sick or disabled that have received many more than the initial (2) loads of firewood.

Firewood Ministry volunteers cut up trees that are donated from the community at large, haul the cut blocks to a central location, split the blocks into usable firewood, and then deliver as needed to Greene County residents.
