The SERVPRO Ramp Volunteer Project December 26, 2018

St. Augustine, St. Johns
The SERVPRO Ramp Volunteer Project, St. Augustine, Florida

Disabled veterans can face a number of daily challenges when they return home from service and unfortunately, they don’t always receive the assistance they need. It’s important to not only raise awareness about this issue, but to also help. Recently, the professionals at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach in St. Johns County, FL, made it their duty to give back. They’ve learned the importance of community through their extensive storm, water, and fire damage repair services and are proud to help their community through hard times. 

The Ramp Project

When SERVPRO learned that a disabled U.S. military veteran in the St. Augustine area couldn’t afford to build a wheelchair ramp to enter his home, they, along with St. John’s Housing Partnership and Luce Air, decided to take care of the job, free of charge. Together, they custom-built a ramp to the veteran’s home, ensuring he could always come and go without facing obstacles.

Why SERVPRO Cares

The team at SERVPRO knows that challenges arise and things happen that are out of anyone’s control. It takes a community standing together and helping one another to overcome many of these obstacles. The local business truly cares about their community, which is why they’re committed to more than just fire damage repair and damage restoration services — they’re also committed to volunteering. 

The Importance of Giving Back to Veterans

fire-damage-repair-servpro-of-greater-st-augustone-st-augustine-beachU.S. military veterans make the ultimate sacrifice through their service, and when they return, they need support, especially if they’re injured or disabled. The transition can be difficult, and volunteering is a great way to show your thanks for their bravery and help them get settled back at home. There are plenty of ways to help veterans; explore volunteer opportunities at local events or alongside them — many veterans enjoying volunteering for one another. Contact your local V.A. to help at a hospital, or give back like SERVPRO if any opportunities arise to make a veteran’s life a little bit easier.
