Ramp for Oscar

Volunteers from Lippert Plant 58 work with the nonprofit organization Servants at Work to build a wheelchair ramp for Sujeidy Vasquez and her 13-year-old son Oscar.

ELKHART — Volunteers from Lippert’s program Lippert Cares helped build an ADA-compliant ramp for the family of one of their own over the weekend.

Sujeidy Vasquez’s 13-year-old son Oscar is wheelchair-bound. The family moved from Houston about three months ago and Vasquez began working at Lippert. In the mornings, Vasquez would carry her son down the steps of their home to bring him to school, and then climb the stairs to gather his wheelchair, and do the same bringing him home. When the team at Lippert Plant 58 found out, they wanted to help.
