SAWS completes 8th year of service in 2016

SAWs (Servants at Work), the mission of the Greencastle Presbyterian Church that has provided handicap ramps, steps and safety rails to the financially challenged in Putnam County completed the 2016 build season on November 12th. This year SAWs completed 22 ramps and projects providing improved home access to residents of Putnam County. This brings to the total ramps built in 8 years of service to 137. SAWs ramps are prioritized in the order that they are requested. So some of our clients who wait too late to call run the risk of us not being able to accommodate their needs in the year requested. Due to this, SAWs now has 11 ramps on the list to be built starting in the spring of 2017. For this reason we encourage potential clients to call as soon as possible.

If you or a friend is in need of help in accessing your home please contact SAWs at 765-653-5713, E-mail at churchoffice@cinergymetro.net or find us at facebook at www.facebook.com/SAWSGreencastle

Qualified requesters can receive a ramp, low rise steps, or safety rails at no cost from SAWs.

As we complete our 8th year of providing help to the handicapped in Putnam County SAWs would like to thank everyone who has supported the Mission by volunteering to work or giving monetary donations. A special thanks goes to the Putnam County Community Foundation, Headley Hardware, the Greencastle Eagles FOE #4388, First National Bank, the Putnam County Senior Center, Stardust Hills Homeowner’s Association, the Van Bibber Lake Homeowner’s Association, the WILL Center, the Greencastle Presbyterian Church, the Greencastle Christian Church, and all the other citizens and business organizations that have supported SAWs in 2016. Support from the members of the community is vital to the future success of SAWs. Without this help the work of SAWs cannot continue. Please note that every dollar received by SAWs is used to help those that have difficulties accessing their homes. For this reason SAWs is again requesting the continued support of the community in 2016.

Please remember if SAWs does not provide freedom to the handicapped trapped in their homes in Putnam County – Who Will? To do this SAWs needs Putnam County Community support just as Putnam County needs SAWs to provide freedom to the handicapped.
