More than a dozen DI team members built the ramps from raw materials and did everything from measuring and cutting 2x4s and 4x4s, to screwing in platforms and rails.
“It was a great experience to be able to support the local community with a hands-on project such as building these ramps,” said Ashley Schultze, DynCorp International senior benefits specialist.
The Texas Ramp Project builds wheelchair ramps for disabled or elderly people who can’t afford to buy one. On Saturday mornings, volunteers with give these individuals the freedom to leave their homes again by allowing giving them access to a ramp.
Since incorporating in 2006, the Texas Ramp Project has built more than 4,100 safe, durable ramps across the state of Texas.
The Texas Ramp Project is a volunteer-staffed, 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-denominational, non-governmental organization. They rely on individuals, foundations, congregations, civic organizations and corporate partners to provide the funding, materials, and facilities for their work.
