BAINBRIDGE – The Impact Project completed its 107th project on Saturday after working for two hours in the rain. Project members installed a handicap accessible ramp for a family in Bainbridge.

The handicap accessible ramp was installed at 295 East Afton Road in Bainbridge, for Fayette Goodrich and Gloria Filer. At the time of installation, Goodrich said it was difficult to get Filer in and out of her home without a handicap accessible ramp in place.

According to Impact Project Founder Jim Willard III, after telling the homeowners that he needed to get some additional photos, he surprised Goodrich with a full crew and completed the project in about two hours.

Willard said the project was completed using donated ramp materials from two years ago that were fabricated prior to surprising Goodrich.

"A very nice lady from Oxford whose husband passed away donated the materials for this ramp about two years ago," said Willard. "Since then, we had used some of the materials for one ramp and the rest for this one."
