This week, Builders Care and community partners came together to construct a wheelchair ramp for the Henderson family. The weather could not have been more pleasant and Mrs. Henderson graciously baked goodies for the volunteers each day. Like most projects, there were challenges and setbacks presented each day, but with the expertise of our volunteers and partners, the ramp was successfully completed on Thursday.
A huge THANK YOU to the great volunteers we have had this week and all those involved in making this project a success! We could not have done it without you!
