The Catholic Charities group recently completed a wheelchair ramp for a local resident.
Several Starke County volunteers in the Catholic Charities organization got together on Wednesday and constructed a wheelchair ramp for Ida Craft of North Judson.
Since 2005, Catholic Charities and community volunteers have donated more than 17,412 hours of their time to build wheelchair ramps free of charge for individuals who use wheelchairs, walkers or have other access issues.
Funding for the projects have come from different businesses in the area. Every project the group does is done with safety in mind and meets all local and state safety codes.
If you would like to contribute to the ramp project, contact Tom Szawara of Catholic Charities at (219) 874-8195 or Joan Haugh of Community Services of Starke County at (574) 772-7070.
