Gift oframp helps family in need

Mac Morriss, the project director for Wheel Chair
Ramp Projects in Nassau County and a team of 30 volunteers completed a 35-foot wheelchair ramp project in
Nassauville on Saturday, Dec. 7.
Volunteers working on this ramp included Memorial
United Methodist Church and the Journey Church. This
35-foot ramp will now help a senior and his disabled son
exit safely from their singlewide trailer. Th'e referral for
this ramp came from Frances Vest and Claudia Harris representing the Agency for Persons with Disabilities.
For the past seven years, Council on Aging has teamed
up with Morriss, who represents Builders Care of Nassau
