Providing Free Firewood

So far we have had three groups come from a local non-profit that helps the homeless. This is a photo of Bruce a retired college professor who came down with 8-9 others from Estes Park to work for a few days helping the non-profit meet its needs. This group of people were an absolute delight and fun to work with. Bruce is 80 years old and still does his share to help others.

These are some more of the Estes Park group. Yesterday we had a group with three sixteen girls that were giving their time to help others but carrying firewood. These delightful young ladies were rather slight and were pulling and flipping logs that were as heavy as they were. This group came from Boulder, CO. Today we had a third group that is from the non-profit and again what delightful people to work beside.

So far we have managed 6 cords of firewood and hope to provide at least 20 cords before the end of the summer. More if possible. Last winter we cut and provided about 12, and hopefully this year we can provide more to this very worthy non-profit. Hopefully we will have more groups come and help cut and haul that firewood.  The volunteers all have one thing in common and that is a heart that is bigger than life to help others.

I'm very impressed! It's so good to hear of people everywhere who are willing to help the homeless. Most folks would rather not see them or think of them, or believe they should all be happy to go into shelters. I think we should offer help and withhold judgment.

I totally agree with you Gypsy. We try to do our small part..

I admire you so much, Bruce. When I finally make it to Ft Garland to start building our home, I hope to meet you and your lovely wife. What an inspiration.

thank you for the nice compliment. We are nothing special - just average folks who desire to help out others in any way we can. We are home here most of the time and our name is in the phone book so give us a call and stop by. We can help you get through the gate and give you directions to our house.
