CYC teamed upped with Team Depot to Help build a ramp for an elderly handicapped lady in Cheektowaga, NY. What a fun day we had with everyone! The neighbor's pool looked very inviting...
An awesome day helping someone else.
CYC headed North for this ramp project. With some interesting shrub trimming, the ramp building was under way! The project took a bit longer than what we expected, but we were able to complete it. After two years, the home owner was finally able to come home.
Located in Lehar, NY a man has been struggling with the steps to his home. CYC
was contacted to install a ramp so that he had access to and from his home. On a fairly nice day, we went out and helped this individual gain the freedom of moving in and out of his home without having the need for assistance. Thank you for everyone who came out and helped!
The Twin Lakes Ramp project was a much needed job. The previous ramp was very inadequate causing the resident to fall off. To the extent of causing unconsciousness. Thank you for everyone who came out and helped.
With a backlog of handicapped ramps request, CYC has recently had the much needed materials donated from the Rose Pappas Foundation and Trex Decking donated by Home Depot. These materials provide CYC volunteers with the resources needed to answer the calls that have been coming in for ramps.
This ramp was referred to CYC by the veterans Administration and Dave Wright had scouted this project, prior to his departure to Florida for winter. The prebuilt ramp sections were assembled at the CYC workshop. And then, when we have a “nice” day, we are able to install the ramp.
Located in Steamburg, NY a Korean veteran has been struggling with the steps to his home. Dave and Ray Hoxie a representative of the local American Legion in Steamburg, had contacted CYC to install a ramp and the handrail for access to and from his home.
The weather was cold, but the sunshine made things so much better. As cold as we were, I am sure this veteran who served in the Korean War had seen much colder as a member of the "Frozen Chosen". We were so blessed to be able to make a difference for someone who made a difference for all of us.
A big thank you to Ray Hoxie and the American Legion in Steamburg, NY for allowing us to partner with them to build a easer way of life for a veteran. Ray was a great help and was on top of getting things done. Thanks to the following CYC Volunteers for braving the cold to be with us on a day when most are too busy to be part of a volunteer project: Maryja & Larry Andrews, Kyle Chapman, Ruby Fox, Pete Andrews.
