LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - From painting to replacing wheelchair ramps, a group of United Methodist Army teens have had their hands full this week helping-out senior citizens in Nacogdoches.
Just a few days ago, Arzetta White's wheelchair ramp was a decaying, dilapidated mess. White has severe arthritis and has been stuck in her home for more than a year until Thursday.
"I love it, sure do," said White pointing at her new wheelchair ramp located in the back of her house. "I might just get out there sometimes and sit on the ramp and look at the garden."
White said her new wheelchair ramp gives her freedom to do the things she needs, like go to the store. She said she and her dog Joe-Joe will enjoy taking her wheelchair for a spin around the neighborhood.
So far, the United Methodist Army has completed 21 housing sites in Nacogdoches. The group plans to complete a few more houses Friday.
