Almanor Fishing Association Receives $5,000 Grant for Firewood

The Almanor Foundation in collaboration with the North Valley Community Foundation were pleased to grant $5,000 to the Almanor Fishing Association for the purchase and delivery of firewood to the Rebuilding Greenville Resource Center.

Due to the Dixie Fire, forest closures and evacuations, many residents have not able to gather their winter supply of firewood. The Almanor Foundation worked with members of the Dixie Fire Long Term Recovery Group (LTRG), the Almanor Fishing Association and Westwood True Value to secure Energy Log compressed firewood to fill the need.

True Value Hardware in Westwood is the local distributor of the clean burning firewood. Owner, Alex de Martimprey was eager to assist, including discounting the price of the logs. Volunteers of AFA picked up and delivered six of the twelve pallets immediately, delivering them to Crescent Mills RV & Boat Storage where they will be distributed to citizens in need. Said, John Crotty, Fishing Association President, "This collaboration is a great example of how our small community gets things done". The Almanor Foundation, Almanor Fishing Association,True Value Hardware in Westwood, Crescent Mills RV & Boat Storage and the Crescent Mills Resource Center worked together to serve the residents of our community.

Special thanks to Alex of True Value Hardware, Rick Erickson and Ed Hall of Crescent Mills RV & Boat Storage.
