Alliance Fundraiser Brings Supporters and Goodwill to Cause

The Alliance for Green Heat ran a fundraiser this fall that brought in $6,863 as well as many interesting and valuable offers of support. Scott Williamson of Rehoboth Massachusetts, who runs a pellet stove repair company, offered to repair stoves of low-income families free of charge. And Jim Kane who runs Project Green Heat, a Vermont based non-profit that delivers free wood and wood stoves to low-income veterans, is working with the Alliance now to try to expand his capabilities this winter.

The winners of prize drawing were Ben Preble, or Merrimack, New Hampshire who won first prize stove and Corey Schrock of White Pigeon Michigan who won second prize. Ben chose the Jotul wood stove which is he giving to his father in order to upgrade the older Jotul stove he had.

As promised, there were very good odds in this drawing: we had 230 people enter and 376 outstanding tickets. Thanks again to the companies who donated the prizes: Quadrafire, Jotul, Blaze King, Earth’s Flame and, and to all of you who donated; We hope you will participate again next year. Happy Holidays!
