GREENSBORO, N.C. - Some people are spending the summer season building wheelchair ramps for people with mobility needs.
It's all part of Community Housing Solutions' 10th Annual Ramp-A-Thon event.
Community Housing Solutions is a nonprofit organization that works to provide safe and affordable housing for low-income families in Guilford County.
It serves the elderly, disabled, and single parent homeowners who have a limited or fixed income.
During the week-long Ramp-A-Thon event, volunteers with the Catholic HEART Workcamp at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church roll up their sleeves and build ramps for people in need of a safer home.
More than 80 high school and college students give a week of their summer to serve building the ramps.
Ramp-a-Thon is funded through the support of local businesses, faith groups, and civic organizations.
