How we want do firewood this year and get wood to people goes like this:
This year we want to help people with their firewood needs. If you have people who maybe eligible
for wood support this winter fill out the referral form and send it back into us. We want to start getting wood out into homes NOW so it is drying ready for when the cold
1. It will cost you $20 a load (approximately 2m2 depending on trailer.)
2. We have 5 monthly firewood dates that people can be involved in if they want wood. Firewood days start at 9am to 12noon. We will end with a BBQ
together. You only need to be at 1 of these days to qualify for wood.
The dates are:
1. 20th Feb 9am to 12noon
2. 19th March 9am to 12noon
3. 16th April 9am to 12noon
4. 21st May 9am to 12noon
5. 18th June 9am to 12noon
SCHEDULE OF WHAT HAPPENS ON ONE OF OUR FIREWOOD DAYS:
Drivers and trailers at depot by 8:45
People arrive at depot at 9am to sign in and to load trailers
Load trailers together with bags of kindling
Assign people to cars to deliver and unload wood
Back to depot to load up again
MORNING TEA BREAK WITH SAUSAGES AND MUFFINS
assign people to cars to deliver and unload final trailer load
Back to depot
THATS IT. ALL DONE!!
On these firewood days we will have trailers there to be loaded. (If you have access to a trailer let me know)
You will only need to help load it and deliver it to YOUR place and to ONE OTHER place if time permits.
Note: If no one turns up to help then we won’t be delivering the wood and will have to wait till next time.
There will be exceptions to this and in the situation where this may not be possible and we will work together to find the best solution for all concerned.
This is the first time we are doing firewood this way and so any suggestions as to how we can do this better is welcomed.
Our goal in all this is to help people help themselves and in doing so give an opportunity for people contribute and make the whole process empowering as possible for all of us.
