Broome County Council of Churches’ Ramp It Up Youth Mentoring Initiative is a volunteer mission to promote service, learning and community involvement for youth. How does it work?
The initiative pairs teams of youth and adult volunteers drawn from congregations and community organizations to build wheelchair ramps for homebound residents of Broome County. It’s a win-win: Residents in need are provided easier home access, while the kids learn teamwork, community involvement and pride, along with a basic knowledge of carpentry skills.
Our thanks to all those who have donated money and materials, and especially to these 2016 Ramp Sponsors:
Ramp It Up is an initiative of the Broome County Council of Churches Faith in Action Volunteers program. Thanks to the youth and adult volunteers whose efforts answer the call to those in need in Broome County and make the ramps a reality.
