Volunteers Build Deck and Wheelchair Ramp in Northwest St. Johns County

The St. Johns Housing Partnership (SJHP), Bartram Trail Rotary, Creekside High Engineering Club and Builders Care came together in Northwest St. Johns County Saturday, Dec. 3 to build a much-needed deck and wheelchair ramp for a disabled veteran.

“Everyone pulled together to make this happen,” noted Bartram Trail Rotary Club President Jose Gavarrette. “Giving back to the community is a big part of what we do in Rotary.  Thanks to Andy Chambers of MasterCraft Builder Group, the St. Johns Housing Partnership along with Builders Care and the Creekside High Engineering Club as well as all the many other dedicated volunteers.

Creekside students under the guidance of teacher Kevin Davenport are regular volunteers for these kinds of projects.

“Working on St. Johns Housing Partnership volunteer projects is more than learning skills, they create an impactful, real-world experience for my students,” added Davenport.
