OXFORD – A Vietnam veteran received a 50 foot handicap accessible ramp from The Impact Project after five days of work on his home in Oxford.
According to The Impact Project Executive Director Jim Willard III, his organization recently completed its 134th project for Peggy and Norman “Bill” Wilbur located at 176 Halfway House Road in the Town of Oxford.
Willard said the project included a 50 foot ramp and would have cost approximately $7,000 or $8,000 if handled by a private contractor.
“Peggy and Bill applied to us a couple of months back, and we’ve been really busy but we got here and started what turned into a five day project,” said Willard. “We recently found out that Bill was a vet, and that added a little more grease to the wheel.”
“He deserved this for the time that he served this country, all of our veterans deserve help like this.”
