Special to the Courier

First United Methodist Church is proud to announce, in association with Texas Ramp Project, that volunteers have completed a wheelchair ramp for Melba Lowery Saturday, Dec. 11.   

This is the church’s second ramp completion working with the TRP with expectations that many more builds are in our future. 

FUMC already has three more upcoming builds to start in early 2022. These ramps will all take place in Houston County. 

The church wishes to thank John Laine of the TRP for his supervision and guidance with the United Methodist Missions Program. They are also grateful to the Methodist Men, and one young lady and young man who came out early, on a chilly Saturday morning to complete this ramp. 

If you or someone you know in Houston County is in need of a ramp due to medical circumstances, your health care professional or social worker rep can go to the Texas Ramp Project site and fill out a referral form. See link below.  https://www.texasramps.org/requesting-a-ramp/

Once the TRP has approved it, a date will be selected, and we’ll get it done. If you would like to contribute to the expense of building these ramps, please contact FUMC Crockett, and ask about our Ramp fund. 936-544-2044.
