Local 5 members to the rescue
Monday, April 06, 2015
Local 5 members came to the rescue of Saleem Henery who is dependent on his wheelchair. Saleem's parents had to lift him and his wheelchair up a few steps to get onto their porch and into the house, a difficult and unsafe task. Philadelphia resident Peggy Sutton generously donated a wheelchair lift that had been used by her daughter to the Henery family. Local 5 members dismantled the lift from Peggy's home, repaired the brick wall that had been removed for the lift and then transported and installed the lift at Saleem's house.
Local 5 is proud of the willingness of our member's involvement in our community and very happy for Saleem and his parents.
