Union Members Build Accessibility Ramp for a Teenager in Michigan

October 15, 2013

On the Saturday morning of Oct. 12, an unusually bright and warm fall day, 24 union volunteers gathered in Pinconning, Mich. Their goal was to build a handicap accessible ramp at the home of Ron Rulapaugh, whose 13-year-old grandson became a quadriplegic after a diving accident in August. The teenager went through surgery during the summer, but a ramp had to be in place before he could be released from the facility where he is currently undergoing therapy.
