Volunteers help get firewood to needy families

MORRISVILLE — More than 110 volunteers helped cut, stack and deliver firewood to needy families in Vermont’s Lamoille County as a service project to mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Students from local schools and adults of all ages chipped in on Tuesday.
Dan Noyes, program coordinator for the RSVP Volunteer Center in Morrisville, said the work was “a way for folks to pay tribute, to do something good.”
The Burlington Free Press reports that volunteers delivered more than 70 cords of wood and stacked at least another 40 cords to be given away next year.
The fuel wood is expected to help about 40 families heat their homes in winter.
