Senior Wood Delivery
For more than 15 years, the Enterprise Lions Senior Firewood Program has delivered over 200 truckloads of firewood over the course of its existence. This is a cooperative effort in partnership with CALFire and several other entities:
Enterprise Lions members deliver and unload firewood at the homes of needy seniors in the Redding, Bella Vista and Palo Cedro areas of Shasta County.
The firewood is cut, split and loaded into club member's trucks buy the Inmate Fire Fighters at Sugar Pine Conservation Camp. (The camp is a cooperative operation of CALFire and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.)
This firewood comes from fuel reduction projects these fire crews perform throughout the year.
Dignity Health’s Connected Living program (formerly Golden Umbrella) provides the client list for this program. Participants must meet financial and/or disability criteria in order to be referred to this program.

Sugar Pine Conservation Camp Community service projects
During the calendar year, Sugar Pine Conservation Camp, through conservation and work projects, provided the local communities, State Agencies, and Federal Agencies with tens of thousands of work hours. In addition to project and conservation work, the inmate fire crews provided tens of thousands of hours in fire fighting and flood work. It is estimated through Sugar Pine’s emergency responses to fires, floods, and project work, the inmates provided a cost avoidance to the taxpayers of California million dollars.
