This picture doesn’t look all that exciting but it is. The Carpenter’s Sons, who are a group of gentlemen that have chosen to use a portion of their retirement volunteering, are experimenting with a new paint product that has ground up walnut shells in it for anti-slip as an alternative to the no-slip tape they currently use for wheelchair ramps. The tape tends to not stick well & tears easily if someone is using a walker. Wheelchair ramp requires 1" of slope for every 12" of distance, which makes the grade really slight, but that can still be a challenge for some individuals. If this product works, then we can provide a moderate no-slip surface on the entire ramp that will last for a long time.
Innovation should always be measured by how much is improves ones quality of life or solve the problem and less about how big it is. We are encouraged by volunteers that are always looking for a better way to serve their neighbors in need. #SmallThingsChangeNeighborhoods
