On a beautiful Fall day in celebration of World Habitat Day, Christmas in April*Calvert County in partnership with Patuxent Habitat for Humanity built a ramp for a Marine Corp veteran living in Lexington Park. An outstanding team came together to safely and efficiently construct a wheel chair accessible ramp for a United States Marine Corp Veteran. By giving their time and talent, the team was able to provide a safe ingress and egress path for a deserving Veteran.
Mr. Trejo was thrilled with his new ramp and talked about how it will increase his freedom. These were very kind words indeed from a gentleman who served our country to protect and ensure our freedom. As Mr. Trejo walked on his new ramp he said it felt as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar.
#RAMPITUP provided the materials and support to construct this ramp and the teams are looking forward to working with them in the future. Volunteers on this project came from Patuxent Habitat for Humanity, EMAC (Exelon Militaries Actively Connected), Harvest Fellowship Presbyterian Church, Exelon Generation and Christmas in April*Calvert County. Nothing good can happen without great volunteers.
