Our Wood Ministry, headed by Russ Brouer, has been blessed by some truly generous donations. We have received from Bill and Lorrie Harvey a dump trailer. Don and Roberta Fink recently donated a 1984 Ford F 700 pickup truck and Dan Garrick has donated a White GMC pickup truck. The Matthew Long Community Foundation has donated a chainsaw and Greg Barreto of Barreto Manufacturing in La Grande donated a hydraulic log splitter. The log splitter does not use the typical chains, belts and gears that wear out faster therefore, lasting years longer. Matt Sand donated time and labor to the repair of the brakes on the dump trailer. The Wood Ministry is shaping up to be more effective than ever. The Ministry, which donated over 400 cords of wood last year, should easily pass that number with the donations that have been made. The need in our community seems to be rising and the donations will help our Wood Ministry meet the demand. As with most of the services offered by the Compassion Center, the Wood Ministry relies heavily on volunteers. We are blessed to have those that can and do so much to make this valuable service successful and achievable. Thank You to all that have contributed and continue to donate and support this valuable worthwhile cause.
