IMG_4730Special Request:  We have had 2 requests for wheelchair ramps this year.  In order to make this happen, we need 2 team leaders for these projects.  The team leaders will be volunteers who agree to take on a leadership role for each wheelchair ramp, making sure materials and tools are at the site, giving direction to volunteers, etc.  If you are interested in being a team leader, contact Randy Bowen at rbowen@cableone.net.

We will also need money to purchase lumber and other supplies for these two wheelchair ramps.  We estimate each ramp will cost about $500 ($1,000 total).  If you would like to donate to this effort, send checks made out to “FPC” to First Presbyterian at 818 N Main, Bonham, TX 75418.  VERY IMPORTANT: Be sure to indicate on the check that it is for Great Days of Service.

We will also need skilled and unskilled help to build these wheelchair ramps.  Sign-up for “Home Improvement” and in the comment section tell us you want to help with the Wheelchair ramps.  Register now
