Servants at Work (SAWS) Opportunities
Will You Donate to Help Build Freedom for People with Disabilities?
Did you know that 26% of people living with disabilities are also living in low-income households? Accessibility is a basic need that is often financially unattainable for many people in our community. SAWs (Servants at Work, Inc.) strives to help people be able to safely access their homes and communities by building ADA-compliant custom wooden ramps at no cost to our clients. Too many of our neighbors are in need of our help, and your support could change a life! Would you consider donating $50 to help us afford to build ramps to freedom and accessibility for people living with long-term disabilities? Your donation has a direct impact and is critical to being able to source raw materials for the ramps in the face of growing lumber costs. Please visit us online at SAWsramps.org/donate.
