An act of kindness from a local church

Charitable acts help a local disabled woman to have more independence and a safer travel route

Members of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Silver Creek have been working on a project as an act of kindness. Renee was badly in need of a wheelchair ramp to get in and out of her home.

“The ramp was at a 45 degree angle, and when she came down, someone had to catch her, so we thought maybe we could design a ramp with volunteers,” said Irene Loewen,” a clerk at Seventh Day Adventist Church.

Church members Bill Loewen, Ian Williams, Darol Rick, Wally Ganz, and William Parker generously volunteered their time to build it. Hilbert Corbett from Hope Ready Mix, contributed with fill, concrete and soil. “These volunteers are older members of the church community and saw a need, very much in keeping with our motto, “Loving God, and Loving people,” The church’s outreach in the community includes, vegetarian cooking classes, Meals on Wheels, soup kitchen and birthday parties at Fraser Hope Lodge.

If there is enough interest, the Church is willing to have a cessation smoking clinic, depression recovery, parenting classes, a Community Health Improvement Project (CHIP,) and a financial management class.
