Ramp Build with F3RVA

1

F3 brothers we have an opportunity to work with Project Homes to install ramps for handicapped people in our communities. This is Richmond based and we are helping our less fortunate neighbors that need a ramp to navigate from their house to the driveway or sidewalk. These folks do not have the means to have a ramp professionally installed. Project Homes with the help of volunteers, corporate and private donations are able to procure the raw materials and build ramp kits for future ramp builds. Staff volunteers and volunteers outside the Project Home group will meet at the ramp build site at 8:30 am and assemble the kits to build a ramp by 12 noon. They typically need 6 volunteers to work alongside the install teams to install the ramp kits. I have personally worked on 3 ramp installs and it is very organized and you will work with their assistance. You just need to be dressed for the weather and show up. They have all of the tools, fasteners and safety equipment that you will need to build the ramp.

Please see link below for more information about this volunteer program

If after reviewing what the ramp build is all about and you are interested we have 4 dates for ramp installs: January 18, 2022, January 27, 2022, February 10, 2022 and February 24,2022.

The sign up sheets are in the 2022Ramp Build Tab in the F3Richmond Monthly Challenges Google sheet docs file.

This is a great event and please contact me if you have further questions.

  1. F3 brothers, we have an update on the first ramp build scheduled for Tuesday January 18, 2022 and we need some more volunteers as this is a large ramp. Please go to the F3 Richmond Monthly Challenges sheet and look for the 2022Ramp Build Tab for sign up information. The address for the Ramps will be added as we get closer to the actual date. The start time will be 8:30am and we wrap up before noon. You will be amazed on what is completed in 4 hours and we cannot do this with you the help of volunteers. So Far we have Pigskin signed up and hope to see some more F3 brothers there.
