JACKSONVILLE, FLA. March 10, 2022 – Real estate professionals from the Northeast Florida Association of REALTORS® (NEFAR) will partner with Builders Care, the charitable arm of the Northeast Florida Builders Association, to construct a wheelchair ramp for a Southside family that is in desperate need of help accessing their home.

The construction project will take place on Wednesday, March 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at 2841 Goldenrod Circle W., Jacksonville, FL 32246.

The beneficiaries of the wheelchair ramp are an amputee, who has recently suffered from a heart attack, and his wheelchair-bound wife. The results of the all-day event will allow the disabled homeowners an easier way to enter and leave their home.

Approximately 80 members of NEFAR will provide the labor to build the wheelchair ramp as part of the REALTOR® association’s Community Affairs Task Force. Builders Care, a nonprofit with the mission to assist low-income homeowners by making critical home repairs, will provide all the construction materials necessary to complete the ramp project.
