We have one Stopgap Ramp looking for a home in North Perth. Ramp is 3ftx3ftx6.75". Does your business need it? Contact us for more details!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this amazing event! Julie Sawchuk's talk about perseverance, optimism, respect and courage was inspiring! Julie mentioned "The Possibilities Project" - a project to support patients of Parkwood Institute with spinal cord injuries or acquired brain injuries who are faced with significant financial challenges. If you would like to read more about this project, click here: www.sjhcfoundation.org/possibilities
Julie also talked about the need to update signage to better reflect the level of activity of all people. Keep an eye out for this new wheelchair symbol and encourage the use of this new symbol!

December's focus is on Compassion
The Stop Gap initiative is happening in our community thanks to the hard work of Danny Steeves Eby. Danny wants to increase awareness of the barriers that he and other people with disabilities face in Listowel on a daily basis, and is determined to provide lightweight, non-permanent ramps to the business community at no cost. These ramps will directly benefit business owners, residents and visitors to Listowel, Ontario. LDSS has already agreed to build the ramps and Watson’s Home Hardware has generously supplied the materials. See the pictures below. As you can see, you can pick your colour (four colours to choose from) and size. They are also very lightweight and easy to store (as seen by the one at Diana’s Sweets Restaurant). If you are interested in ordering a ramp, please email us and we will send you the form.
