Northwest Hills UMC Central Texas Food Bank
Texas Ramp Project
Our teams build wooden wheelchair ramps for free to disabled or elderly people who can't afford to buy one. In a few hours on a Saturday, we give our neighbors the freedom to leave their home again—the home where they want to remain, but whose steps have imprisoned them. The Central Texas affiliate of Texas Ramp Project provides client referrals, permits, designs, tools and materials. NWH UMC provides the labor and build leaders. Look for the next build dates in the Sunday bulletins. Sign up is in the church lobby.
