Nothing quite illustrates the loving and caring nature of the Gloucester community like two entities coming together to help a person in need.
Gloucester High School freshman Angel Reynolds expressed to her physical therapist, Amanda Faulkner, that she would like to enter and exit her home on her own. As a wheelchair user, this was impossible without a ramp.
Through a corporate grant, Gloucester’s Home Depot was able to obtain supplies and donate them to the GHS Construction Tech department. From there, students built the ramp in less than two weeks.
GHS and Home Depot staff were able to transport and install the ramp at Reynolds’s home the weekend of her 16th birthday.
Volunteers from GHS were Tim Extine, Faulkner, Flora Brunjes and Starlina Kladler. Home Depot volunteers included Marie Lass, Que Gardner, Angie Knuth, Amanda Hawk, Jon Oliver and John Kutch.
