On Wednesday June 14, 2017 Builders Care was able to help a disabled homeowner with accessibility improvements in Fort Myers thanks to Argos USA and Bonness Construction.
Cassandra Mitchell suffers from Multiple Sclerosis and her daily living conditions are far from ideal. Her physical abilities began to decline in in 2009. Argos USA and Bonness Construction stepped up to make the home more accessible by extending the sidewalk space from the front door to the driveway. The sidewalk space was not adequate for the safety of Cassandra’s transportation needs. The concrete extension will better allow her to enter and exit the home safely and with ease. All labor and materials were donated by Argos USA and Bonness Construction at no cost to the homeowner. The total value of services is estimated to be $3,500.
A huge thank you to Argos USA and Bonness Construction for stepping in to make difference for this deserving Lee County homeowner.
