Portlight & Bona Responds Ramp it Up in NY

By: Portlight , 4:35 PM GMT on January 08, 2013


We're excited to bring you an update on our activities in post-Sandy New York! Working with Jim Mahar and the good folks from Bona Responds, a ramp has been built for young Ryan in Breezy Point, who has cerebral palsy. His dad was having a tough time getting him out of the house, to and from school, after their lift was destroyed. Portlight helped with the lumber, and Bona Responds built the 55 linear feet of ramp. They're doing amazing work, in spite of freezing temperatures and short days. They even hang drywall in the dark!

Many thanks to the Robin Hood Foundation, the Disability Funders Network, the Kessler Foundation, and as ALWAYS, to YOU, for your continued support!! Ryan LOVES his new ramp!!
