Jackson Co. Fuel Committee Winter Preps

ASHLAND, Ore. – While the sun is still keeping us fairly warm out side, a community effort is underway to help resident stay that way through the winter season.

Truck loads of wood were cut Wednesday morning as a part of the Jackson County Fuel Committee mission. The group is entirely made up of volunteers and the wood is all gathered through donations.

During the winter months, the crew delivers about fifteen truck loads a week to low income families, but the need isn’t limited to December and is already increasing.

“The cold really affects them. Last week, we delivered nine truck loads of wood and even though the weather has been in the nineties we are getting a tremendous amount of requests,” explained Bill Jennett, with Jackson County Fuel Committee.
