Your Anniversary Grant at Work
The Disability Action Center recently installed a ramp for a Moscow woman who was injured in a car accident. She had already been discharged and was in the home, but it takes 3 men to lift her up the steps. A platform had to be built on the porch, to lift it to doorway level. Then we installed a 6-foot ramp down to the 45-degree platform, then down a 10-foot and 9-foot ramp to the lawn. It appears that a car can now be driven to the foot of the ramp for her access. Handrails were installed on the 6 and 10-foot sections. Some of the recently purchased components were used to make this ramp happen.
Brent Bradberry (PHfH) was joined by Larry Verdal (MCLC/Elk Member), Wayne Krauss (MCLC/Elks Secretary) and family friend Gary Blevins. The recent contribution of $1500 from Moscow Elks Lodge 249 to Disability Action Center will help enhance this program.
By my unofficial count, there are 9 or 10 households currently being served through this program.
Until next time…
Larry Verdal, Member, Moscow Elks Lodge #249
