HANNAWA FALLS -- Helping Hands of Potsdam is asking for donations of dry, cut, split and delivered firewood to distribute to families in need this winter.
Those with a little extra wood this year due to last year’s mild winter might consider donating some extra wood.
The federal HEAP heating assistance program has been cut this year and as a result many North Country families will be struggling to keep warm.
In addition to firewood, Helping Hands is also asking for donations of quilts, blankets and sleeping bags.
Financial contributions can be mailed to Helping Hands, Box 92, Hannawa Falls, NY 13647.
Helping Hands is a Christian human service organization dedicated to helping others in Potsdam and surrounding communities.
For more information call Tom Chappell at 268-0633.
Helping Hands is at 5868 State Highway 56 in Hannawa Falls. Donations can be dropped off Monday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. or by appointment.
