The Broome County Council of Churches' Ramp it Up program has received some good news.
It has received a $1,500 grant from the Binghamton Rotary Club Number 64 and from Rotary District Council Number 7170. The money will be used to help buy a lumber and service trailer. Ramp It Up is a program where volunteers build handicapped ramps for people in need.
Rev. Dr. Joseph Sellepack says, "Now what this does for us is it allows us to buy lumber when it's on sale and store it and be able to bring it out to places. Or else do a bulk order on one place where you have some left over product at the end and you can bring all the left over products back to our little lumber yard, triage it all, put it all together and be able to bring it out to another work site. So, you can save costs.
"The Ramp It Up program is also a way to teach young people how to build and learn needed life skills.
