The Royal Order Of Red Suspenders (RORS)
A ministry of Salem Alliance Church that provides seasoned, cut, split firewood delivered for free to those in need. RORS accepts donations of wood from the community.  When excess wood stores allow, RORS sells firewood with the proceeds going to fund the ministry.

Purchase Firewood 
As of 6/1/18, we have excess firewood to sell.  
Firewood is split and seasoned and available for $225 per cord for fir, $250 for oak, maple or oak/maple mix per cord. If you would like to purchase some firewood, please click the button below and complete the form, which will be emailed to someone in our ministry, who will contact you. Payments can be made by check made out to Salem Alliance Church with RORS and # cords/type wood in the memo. Delivery arrangements made upon receipt of paid order.  Please include your phone number or email so we can contact you for delivery.   Proceeds from firewood sales go directly to funding the RORS ministry, helping provide free firewood to those in need.  


Need Firewood
As of April 1, 2018, RORS is closed for the season
.  We will begin receiving requests for firewood from those in need for heating their homes again on October 1, 2018.  During this off-season, we do not receive requests on our phone line, or via the email button below.  Requests made during off-season are not answered.

Donate Wood to RORS
RORS is unable to accept wood donations at this time
. We have more wood than we can store and our volunteer teams have plenty of work to do splitting and stacking existing wood for the coming season. 

We can recommend two options for your wood:

  1. St. Paul's Woodcutters organization:  
    www.stpaulsoregon.org/stpaulsguilds  This ministry gives firewood to those in need just like our RORS ministry does.
  2. Marion County's Youth Firewood Program: www.co.marion.or.us/JUV/freshstartmarket/Pages/firewood.aspx or call (503) 588-5324. This organization sells firewood they have prepared to help fund the juvenile programs they run.  

You may want to advertise your wood on craigslist.  There are many firewood sellers listed on craigslist who are processing (cutting/splitting) wood to sell as seasoned firewood.  However, this would not be a tax-deductible donation. Thank you for thinking of RORS. We are sorry we cannot accept your donation.
