People were rushing to stock up on wood, and now Waldo County Woodshed is completely out of it.
Treasurer of Waldo County Woodshed Dawn Caswell said "We ran out a week ago."
Volunteers run the Waldo County Woodshed program to make sure the elderly, low income Mainers and others stay warm during the cold winter. They have already distributed 113 cords this season, helping about 140 households.
"We're out about $37,000 as far as the needing assistance at the cost of wood right now" said Caswell.
This weekend they are holding an emergency work party in hopes of pulling out another ten cords that's covered in the snow.
"So we'll make it through another two weeks is what we're hoping, and after that we are going to be completely out of any wood that we had" said Caswell.
They are currently looking for wood like ash and hardwood for next year. "We've purchased 27 cords and we have another 36 cords ordered for next year" said Caswell.
She said people thought they were prepared, but weren't. "They weren't ready they thought they had enough, and the way our process works you're not vetted in any way all you do is call our office and say hey I'm out of wood."
She says any help that they can get throughout the season is greatly appreciated. "Because all of this is one hundred percent volunteered based" Caswell.
