SAWs completes ninth year of service in 2017

SAWs (Servants at Work), the mission of the Greencastle Presbyterian Church that builds handicap ramps, steps and safety rails to the financially challenged in Putnam County completed the 2017 build season on Nov. 11.

This year SAWs completed 22 ramps and projects providing improved home access to residents of Putnam County. This brings the total ramps built in nine years of service to 159.

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. For this reason we encourage potential clients to call as soon as possible for help in 2018.

If you or a friend is in need of help accessing your home please contact SAWs at 765-653-5713, email at churchoffice@cinergymetro.net or find us on 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 ninth 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 is made to the Putnam County Community Foundation, 100 Men Who Care, Headley Hardware, the Greencastle Eagles FOE #4388, First National Bank - Cloverdale, the Rotary Club of Greencastle, Stardust Hills Homeowner’s Association, the Van Bibber Lake Homeowner’s Association, the WILL Center, Greencastle Presbyterian Church, Greencastle Christian Church, Hopkins Rector and Bittles & Hurt Funeral Homes, Putnam County Fair and all the other citizens and business organizations that have supported SAWs in 2017.

Support from the members of the community in the form of continued donations and the help of volunteers to build the ramps is vital to the future success of SAWs. For this reason SAWs is again requesting the continued support of the Community in 2018.

If SAWs does not help the handicapped trapped in their homes in Putnam County– Who Will?
