A local organization donated a handicap ramp at St. Joseph and Immaculate Heart of Mary School on Wednesday.

The Home Builders Association donated the ramp and installation for a teacher who uses a wheelchair and sometimes has to be carried into the building.

Carter Lumber provided the materials for the project and HBA members donated the installation.

“When I saw what was needed, the importance of it when they also told me there may be a little boy or girl first grader that maybe needed for a wheelchair ramp and the school didn’t have the funds available,” said the HBA’s Albert R. Alexander.
