News & Observer Feature Article: Ramp Built by STN

Jason Townsend, 48, fell ill a year ago and lost much of his ability to walk easily, but help from the nonprofit Serve the Need in Johnston County allows him to access the Willow Spring home he shares with wife Melissa. The wide plank deck provides an easy path for his manual wheelchair, and Townsend can rest on a flat landing at the turn. Photos by Teri Boggess

New Ramp Built – November 17, 2017

Royal Williams and his group of Ramp-building volunteers have finished a ramp for 91-year old, Mr. David Blinson.

To date, Serve The Need has completed over 35 ramps in the Johnston County area.

STN provides free labor for our projects.  However, each client is asked to provide some funding for materials and supplies for their ramp or small home repair. Other funding comes from our members, churches, and other community organizations.
