Every few years, Orange Plaza Rotary is approached by a health care provider or family member of a wheelchair-bound local resident. After checking out the home, city ordinances and local rules of the HOA or mobile home park, we get to work!
Our third wheelchair ramp was built over the weekend of February 6th, with community volunteers (and kids!) assisting. Our ramps our built from scratch to the exact specifications of the installation location. We cut and assemble the wood pieces, including railings, at the home of a Rotarian and then travel to the recipient’s home to install. Finish painting is done on-site and pictures are taken of our handiwork.
We hope to expand this project in the future to bring independence and mobility to more people in our community.
