PLYMOUTH - The Impact Project visited Plymouth over the weekend, creating a wooden wheelchair ramp and installing a brand new driveway for a woman who had fallen in front of her home several weeks ago and wasn’t able to get back up on her own.
According to The Impact Project Founder and Executive Director James Willard III, this project was done with a barebones crew of less than 15 people, and it was a project that couldn’t wait.
“There are people that are suffering who need help right now,” said Willard. “This was a case where we limited the number of volunteers we had on site, provided masks and gloves, and got the job done in two days.”
Willard said Maude Thompson has been a homeowner in the Plymouth area since the 80’s, and she reached out to The Impact Project before its application freeze late last year. He said on Friday and Saturday The Impact Project created a ramp, sidewalk, concrete pad, and landscaping as well.
He added that the project was mostly done after the first day, and that an even smaller group of volunteers returned on the following day to plant flowers and present Thompson with a bible.
