SAWs’ 4000th Ramp: The Parry Family & Rehab Medical

As we stand on the brink of a significant milestone in our mission to provide mobility and freedom to those in need, we are thrilled to share the story of our 4000th ramp recipients—the Parry family. Their journey epitomizes the profound impact of your support and the collective difference we can make in people’s lives.

Despite facing mobility challenges, Darlene, Chaplin for the local American Legion Auxiliary, is on the brink of gaining greater independence with her new power wheelchair, thanks to the collaborative efforts of her physician and insurance provider. The installation of a SAWs ramp at their home symbolizes a new chapter of accessibility and opportunity for the Parrys—a beacon of hope nur

Bob Parry, an esteemed Army veteran and dedicated First Vice Commander of Pendleton, Indiana’s American Legion Post 117, embodies resilience and a commitment to community service. He is passionate about spreading the word to other veterans about SAWs ramps, encouraging them to apply for a ramp or discover purpose by volunteering to help build ramps. Bob’s dedication showcases the lasting impact of your generosity, highlighting the strength of unity and shared goals. Together, we can achieve more than just constructing ramps – we can create pathways to brighter futures.

As veterans ourselves—Rik Hagarty, SAWs founder and Vietnam veteran, alongside Laura Belko, SAWs Marketing Director and proud Navy veteran—we deeply understand the importance of supporting fellow veterans and their families. It is both an honor and a privilege to stand in solidarity with those who have selflessly served our country.

In addition to our incredible community of supporters, we are thrilled to announce that Rehab Medical is partnering with SAWs to sponsor the 4000th ramp and our celebratory event. They will be building the Parry’s ramp on May 1st with their employees, showcasing their commitment to accessibility and community.

Rehab Medical‘s generous support for SAWs’ 4000th ramp celebration exemplifies their dedication to accessibility and community.  Without partners like Rehab Medical, our mission of providing mobility and freedom to those in need would not be possible.

As we celebrate this remarkable milestone, we invite you to join us in our mission to provide mobility and freedom to those in need. Whether you choose to volunteer your time or donate to SAWs, your support can help us continue making a difference in the lives of individuals and families across our community.
