The 2014 Firewood Program is now closed. We are no longer accepting applications.
This program is run in partnership between the United Way of Lamoille County, RSVP & the Volunteer Center and the State of Vermont.
The State of Vermont donates log length wood to the project each year. The wood comes from trees cut on state land in and around the Lamoille County area.
RSVP & the Volunteer Center coordinates the volunteers who make this project possible. On average, 125 volunteers are needed each year. These volunteers work throughout the summer processing the wood. Many local companies give their employees time to volunteer to this project.
Our United Way takes care of the logistics, determines income eligibility, coordinates the "work day" (held on September 11 - a National Day of Service) and supplies food and water for the volunteers, gas for the splitters and chain saws, and handles publicity surrounding the event.
Applications are accepted from August through September 5. Late applications will not be accepted. The 2014 Firewood Project is now open.
