Wood banks appear in New England

Posted: Updated:

Most people have heard of food banks and blood banks, but here in New England communities are opening up wood banks to keep families warm this winter.

Church groups and social agency volunteers run these banks in different towns.

They chop and stack the wood and some volunteers will even transport the wood to families in need.

These wood banks are meant for people who do not qualify for federal assistance and do not the have time to submit emergency paperwork to the state.

Wood stoves supply heat to 18 percent of Vermont homes and 8.5 percent of New Hampshire homes.
