With the help of a group from First Presbyterian Church of Rumson, N.J., the Ginger Ford Northshore Fuller Center for Housing built a ramp for an Army veteran in Hammond, Louisiana, on Friday, and then teamed up with volunteers from Rebuilding Together and Charter Spectrum to build a ramp and make repairs for a Vietnam veteran in Independence, Louisiana, on Saturday.

Ginger Ford Northshore Executive Director Tamara Danel reported live from the scene Saturday in a video that you can view here. Meanwhile, the Hammond Daily Star reported on both of the projects — click here for the report on Friday’s work and click here for the report from Saturday. Below are a few photos from the two days of work:
