“The Caring Christian Carpenters started as a summer project for high-school students from First United Methodist Church…
‘We would work with the children three or four days during the summer,’ said 94-year-old coordinator Harold Lane. ‘After five or six years, the children dropped away and we started building ramps. Through the years, we average about 50 a year.’ ”
The "Caring Christian Carpenters" build free ramps but some ramp recipients choose to give a donation.
