On May 20 four recipients had ramps built for them at their homes to help them safely enter and exit.
Willie McDonald, who is disabled, had a ramp put in by Huntwood Cabinets.
Crystal Timmons had Prestige Residential Construction build her a ramp.
“I can now get out safely to get to the Access Bus or my son’s truck,” she said.
Linda Masters, who has multiple sclerosis, had Strata Architects and Swinerton Builders build her a ramp.
Masters has not been able to leave her home in the last two years due to an unstable ramp.
The fourth recipient was Jay Scott who had fallen and broke his hip. Due to his injury, he is unable to walk.
Terrene Homes built the ramp for Scott.
“It means a lot,” Scott said. “It means getting out and not being cooped up all the time. This is all because I have a cracked hip.”
Scott’s caretaker Sharon Lamkin said it has been a struggle for him to get in and out of his house.
Mike Walsh, president of Terrene Homes and board president of the Masters Builders Association, said this was a “great opportunity for MBA members who build for a living to give back to the community.”
He added, “It’s a great opportunity for us to get together as a team and help someone who really needs it.”
