Senior Firewood Program

Since 1979, the Senior Firewood Program has provided extra warmth to low-income seniors by delivering firewood for winter. The group of dedicated volunteers cut, split and deliver the firewood to seniors in need in our community.

Firewood Removal

GCSS gladly removes wood under the following conditions:

  • Trees must be down (we cannot fell trees).
  • Wood needs to be located within 10 miles of Grass Valley and accessible by vehicle.
  • We do not accept Digger Pine, kindling or remove slash; sorry!
  • At this time, our Softwood Yard is full – we currently have a long waitlist to remove wood. Thank You!

To donate wood, please call (530) 615-4541 or email us at: info.goldcountryservices.org.
