In July 2013 in Lansing, Michigan, several carpenters from the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters (MRCC) and Millwrights Local 1004 got some major karma points by building a ramp/patio for the home of a 91-year-old retiree and his wife, who uses a wheelchair. The carpenters donated their labor, the United Auto Workers bought the materials, and local businesses such as Home Depot discounted the cost of the necessary materials. Kevin Klingler, Director of the MRCC, said, “It’s great to be able to help someone out, and by this afternoon, his wife is gonna be able to come out and sit on the deck. We made it big enough — not just a ramp — but a nice little patio in a shaded area so she can get out and still have some quality of life and sit out in her chair. So, that makes you feel good.”
