Ramp Project puts Service into Action!

The Rotary Club of El Paso’s "Ramps for Texas Program" recently completed its 45th successful build in the last four years.  With cooperation from the East El Paso Rotary Club, the Northeast Rotary Club of El Paso and the Franklin Mountain Rotary Club, as well as seven teenage “Adventurers” who are affiliated with Boy Scouts, they completed the ramp in one day!
Before the first board is cut, these projects involve evaluation of the site, planning the location of the ramp, obtaining the necessary tools and materials and recruiting volunteers.  The approximate cost of materials for the ramp was $2800, which were purchased from Lowe’s at cost.  The Women's Club of El Paso served hamburgers and hot dogs on site for lunch.
“We leave behind a clean site, an owner demonstrated ramp, tired souls with renewed hearts and a small plaque mounted on the ramp in remembrance of our efforts,” said Rotarian David Kessinger.
It’s not just the ramp owner that benefits.  Kessinger says the volunteers gain self-confidence, gratification and achievement, while community benefit, Rotary exposure and a vocational experience for our youth (not to mention being social and having a great time) are also achieved.
Thanks to all who participated and showed true Service Above Self!
