  • Join our team of Firewood Volunteers by becoming a Wood Yard Supervisor. Generally, you would work 4 to 6 hours per week, providing qualified seniors with access to firewood that keeps them warm in the winter. We will also ask you to help with our big delivery events that are held each Fall. There is not much work right now as winter turns to spring, but we would love to hear from you! If interested, please call Nicole Grimes at 615-4541.
  • Be a part of our Senior Firewood Program which provides firewood to low-income seniors. There are three positions in this program, and each role needs more volunteers:
  1. Wood Cutters - As part of the Senior Firewood Program Wood Cutting Team you will work with others to cut felled trees into rounds, load the rounds into trucks and trailers and deliver the wood to one of our wood storage yards. This team turns unwanted trees from private property into wood heat. When the wood yards are full, the team often assists with wood splitting or delivery. Great group of folks who like to work with their hands to help others. The team does not work in inclement or extremely hot/dry weather. Days needed are Mondays and Tuesdays from 8:00am to 12:00pm. 
  2. Wood Splitters - As part of the Senior Firewood Program Wood Splitting Team you will work in groups of 3 to split firewood. The team typically works one day a week and does not work in inclement weather. GCCS provides the team with a commercial grade hydraulic wood splitter which the team must maintain (gas/oil/grease). The splitting team works on Thursday mornings from 8:00am to 12:00pm.
  3. Wood Delivery Drivers - We are looking for friendly folks with strong backs to load and deliver firewood to our senior clientele. As a member of the Senior Firewood Program Delivery Team, you will work with others and use your personal vehicle to help others keep warm this winter. We will also ask you to help with our big delivery events that are held each Fall. This team is quickly dwindling while the need to stay warm remains strong. GCCS offers a mileage reimbursement of $0.32/mi, if requested. Days and times needed vary based on the needs of our clients. Shifts range from 2 to 4 hours per week.

A wonderful benefit of volunteering with this program is the camaraderie of working with like-minded people out in nature who are rewarded by helping others. If interested, please call Nicole Grimes at 615-4541.
