41 Ramps Built with StopGap for the Danforth & Leslieville! By: greening homes

July 22, 2014

This past Saturday we teamed up again with StopGap to build ramps for stores and businesses along the Danforth and in Leslieville. StopGap is a Toronto organization that has a DIY accessibility mandate: remove barriers for people with disabilities, one storefront at a time by building simple ramps.

After building 43 ramps last year for businesses along Roncesvalles, Luke Anderson at STOPGAP invited us back to help out this year. All of the drawings for the 41 ramps we built this year were pre-measured and by Luke and his team prior to Saturday’s build day. We had 5 Greening Homes crew members participate in the build plus several friends and spouses + one kid (thanks for painting Sydney!).

“StopGap is creating a world where every person can access every space through fun and engaging community projects that raise awareness and remove barriers.” Luke Anderson, StopGap co-founder.
