CANCELLED Project 16 - Wheelchair Ramp

UPDATE 3/19: We received an email from the person who originally contacted us. This project is off the table for now. If circumstances change in the future and they would like our help, we will send out the call for people with Time to Help. Thanks so much for everyone who was willing to volunteer time and resources for this cause. Don't stop offering help to others!!

UPDATE 3/9: The person who contacted us is gathering more information regarding supplies, measurements and availability. We will let everyone know as soon as we have more information.

Got time to help a family in need?

We just received an email from a wonderful couple whose close friends are going through some very rough times right now. Here is a recap of their email to us:

The woman just recently had a stroke and the husband has some rather severe heart issues and is on disability. They also have a teenage son. The woman would love to be able to come home to her family, but they have no wheelchair access (ramp) at their home and they might need some minor modifications to the inside so that she will be able to maneuver around.

Some or all of the materials can be purchased by the friends, but they can't afford to hire someone right now. This is exactly why we started We've Got Time to Help!

These are good people, they have worked hard all their lives and now they need a little help from us!

They live just about 5 miles outside Battleground Washington, so we were thinking we could pick a day for a group of us to go up there so that some of us could carpool. We would like to get this done as soon as possible so that she can come home!

Please let us know if you will join us on this most worthwhile cause!
