Ramps for Wheelchair Bound Patients

RRPJ-Ramps TOP-17Oct6

 

A group of area residents have been helping their neighbors get into and out of their homes for some time now. They spend weekends building wheelchair ramps. The group is headed by Dale Feazel and they accept local donations of supplies and labor.

Last Saturday they gathered in Coushatta for their latest project. Feazel said, “This ramp was built on East Carroll here in town for Ms. Retha Scott. It was sponsored by International Paper’s Mansfield Mill. “

Feazel sent the pictures with this article. He said, “The volunteers, shown left to right are J.C.Merritt, Jeff Hillidage, Joe Dauster, Brad McCoy, Ms. Scott (seated) Tommy O’Rear, Keith Richards, and Jack Ward.”

If you desire to get involved with the project, contact Feazel through his Facebook page.
