Firewood Initiative

Fauquier Community Coalition has developed a wood ministry through coordinating the efforts of several churches in Fauquier County. Downed trees, cut into sections, are donated, and delivered to the spaces designated by the participating churches. Volunteers split the wood and deliver it to clients who have been recommended by the Department of Social Services or other community organizations.

Currently, almost 40 homes in Fauquier County are receiving regular firewood deliveries during the colder months. Volunteers support the wood ministry year-round, splitting and stacking wood during warmer months, and delivering in colder months. Over 630 volunteer hours have been recorded since July 2017.
