Warmth for Wake - Winter 2010-11 Info

Warmth for Wake, a Wake County Human Services program, provides in-need households in and around Raleigh with free firewood from November through March. For many households, fireplaces and wood-burning stoves are the only sources of heat.

Volunteers (with pickup trucks, chainsaws and splitters, if possible) cut and split wood on site, deliver wood to recipients and, sometimes, collect wood from area donors. Volunteers need to read information and sign this form as permission to work.

Sign up with Wilson Day or Spencer Cates for the next date, volunteers are needed Wood Delivery Schedule for the 2010/2011 season :
December 4 & 18, 2010

Red Cross Blood Drive - Jan. 12, 2011

Key Club is sponsoring a Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday, January 12th in the Richards Hall Seminar Room.

Time slots are available every 15 minutes from 12 PM - 4:45 PM. Approximately 1 hour is needed to register, give, and eat a snack. Email me ( now to get the best time available for your schedule.

16 year-olds can donate; read and complete this paperwork:

For all girls under 18, new weight guidelines are listed here: There will not be a scale or yard stick, you will give your own weight and height, so be prepared for this.

For those who have given double before, we would love for you to do it again, let us know!

If you can't donate blood, you can help by helping at check in or canteen. At Check-In you will give the donors some information to read before they donate and if they qualify, move them to the donation area. At the Canteen, you will serve the donors food and drink and monitor them for any reactions. Let me know if you're interested in either of these important support tasks, and what class period you can come.

Thanks so much for your time, please consider helping us meet our goal of 50 units
