Ramp building

Got involved with Ramp It Up today. Their mission is a simple one: build wheel chair ramps for people who need them. The original plan was to gather for a kick-off breakfast, then disperse to various areas to build the ramps. That got nixed by the weather though. Instead a few people ended up at the disAbility Resource Center where we assembled the sections that will later end up being assembled into wheel chair ramps on site. I did a lot of board cutting, while others took the pieces I cut and assembled them into the different sections. Later, those pieces will be delivered to a house somewhere, and more people will assemble them into a ramp that will make it easier for someone to get into their house.

Knowing I helped play a role in that makes me feel good.

Ramp It Up has only just started up, but there's already a list of 30 requests for wheel chair ramps. Want to help?
