Windsor (WBNG) — Students from Windsor High School’s Varsity Club and the Engineering and Design Development class were giving back to the community today by participating in the Ramp It Up Program. This program is run by the Broome County Council of Churches with the goal of providing easier home access to citizens across Broome County.

Thursday, this meant building a handicap accessible ramp for Donna Frazier of Windsor and students were just happy to help out. According to Aidan Kapuschinsky, a student at Windsor, it made him feel great to see everyone come together and help out a family in need.

No one was happier than Frazier, whose mother needs the ramp to get in and out of her home. Previous to this new ramp, the family was using a decades-old one that Frazier described as quote “rickety”. Now, thanks to the Windsor students, and the Ramp it up the program, Frazier has greater peace of mind when it comes to her mother’s safety.

The family has been waiting for this day for over a year now. Originally, construction was supposed to start last spring but due to Covid-19, the project had been delayed.
