Volunteers build ramp for wheelchair bound woman

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- A wheelchair ramp goes up for free Saturday for a woman who says she desperately needed it.

Chattanooga resident Robbie Brown is unable to walk. She says the steps on her porch have kept her from leaving the house much the last couple of years.

Sometimes, she'd have to sit in her car and wait for someone to help her inside. She contacted, the "modern woodsmen" who donated the supplies and labor.

Volunteers with the "good neighbor" program worked all morning to build the ramp for Brown.

"This one's huge. Some are more needed than others but especially this one. It kind of touches your heart and you want to hurry up and get it," says modern woodman Shane Catlett.

"It's going to be amazing, a real joy to be able to come in and out of the house as I please you know," says Brown.

The modern woodmen do around 12 projects like this a year in our area.
