Warmth for Wake 2015-16

Warmth for Wake Information and Guidelines for Ravenscroft Upper School

Warmth for Wake, a Wake County Human Services program, provides in-need households in and around Raleigh with free firewood from October through March. For many households, fireplaces and wood-burning stoves are the only sources of heat.   For more details see: http://www.wakegov.com/humanservices/social/energy/Pages/warmthforwake.aspx

Volunteers (with pickup trucks, if possible) cut and split wood on site, deliver wood to recipients and, sometimes, collect wood from area donors. They must be 16 and need the permission form to work.
See Evan Huseboeand Justin Barber and Andrew Williams for more details. 

Volunteers are needed for each date during our Wood Delivery Schedule for the 2015/16 season:
  • Saturday, December 5

Fall Roundup and Play it Forward

Saturday is going to be AWESOME!  If you're serving, make sure your name is bold, and if you're unable, take your name off this sheet.  Look for "Key Club" Booths, but you can serve anywhere with an opening!

Play it Forward - bring your sporting equipment to the Lacrosse Booth to donate to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Wake County! You'll get a 20% coupon at Omega Sports for helping out. See Tenley for details!
