Letter writer: Consider donating wood from tree-trimming

Graphic by Lori Deaton

When the tree-trimmers hired by Duke Progress Energy come to butcher, er, expertly prune the trees on your property that may interfere with their power lines, please consider donating the wood — especially if it is hickory, locust or oak, and is log-sized rather than just brush — to ABCCM’s firewood ministry, which donates firewood to families in Western North Carolina who use it to heat their homes.

This winter is predicted to be especially cold, and your donation, which will only require a few minutes of your time to make a phone call or send an email, can make a huge difference in the lives of local families.

For more details, contact ABCCM at http://www.abccm.org/cm-contact-us/
