N. Ft. Myers couple to get independence

Lee Builders Care

Volunteers and partners of Lee BIA Builders Care will deliver a truck load of materials and start building a brand new wheelchair ramp for a local man with disabilities. Roy and Betty Logan have had their share of major medical challenges including a life-threatening complications related to diabetes. Roy, 58, had his leg amputated in December and just returned home after a two–month stay in the hospital and 6 months in physical therapy.

On Wednesday, Builders Care partners, Raymond Building Supply and volunteers surprised the couple with a donation of $2K worth of materials and began building a new wheelchair ramp, thanks to local sub-contractors and volunteers who are donating their time and services. Currently, Roy cannot safely get in and out of his home because of the steep climb with 7 stairs.

“Right now if the Logans had an emergency, they would be in dire straits,” said Heidi Taulman, executive director, Lee BIA Builders Care, at the kick-off event. “We could not do it without everyone’s help and Raymond Building Supply is a guardian angel on this project with a donation of $2K worth of materials,”

“This will make things so much easier for us,” said Betty Logan through tears. “We are so grateful.”

Construction of the 47′ ramp and deck will take three days. Contributing companies include MW Sitework & Dumpsters, Harbor Springs Building Company, West Coast Structural Concrete & Masonry, T&M Portable Restrooms and Raymond Building Supply.
