The "Ramp Gang" would like to thank all those who participated either through generous donations, time or labor for this great program. As you can see below, the numbers are impressive, but the results are immeasurable. The number 137 is the most important of them all. That number represents the number of people who now have freedom to the outside world where most of the recipients and care givers of the ramps struggle to get to.
Next year will be even bigger, being the tenth year and closing in on 150 ramps. This program is such a success because of each and every one who contributes and supports it.
Thanks for a great season, stay safe, Merry Christmas and happy holidays. Hope to see you next year.
