Impact on Community

ChartMany of the households served have children in the home.  Estimated direct impact would be 700-800 people who were assisted with free firewood during this heating season.  The volunteers themselves would also tell you that they have been directly impacted thru this opportunity to serve others.  Beside the 25-35 regular volunteers who work each Saturday during the heating season, there have been many youth groups who have helped, including a youth group from Florida who were visiting Greeneville recently for a week of mission work.

During the past heating season the Greene County Firewood Ministry delivered (923) loads of firewood to (221) households in Greene County.  Since its start in 2008, the Firewood Ministry has delivered nearly 3000 loads of firewood to hundreds of Greene County households.
