Service Area: Dallas County and southern Collin County

The volunteers of the Texas Ramp Project in the Dallas area build wheelchair ramps for the low-income disabled.

Kiwannis Club of McKinney

This group has been a great support to our organization, building many ramps in the McKinney area. Thanks for all you do. See some photos of the ramp builds on the Kiwannis Club of McKinney’s website.

VOLUNTEERS Please…
•  Check in at Dallas Ramp Project Warehouse (4720 Simonton Rd, Dallas, TX 75244) by:
Regular Hours   7:30 – 7:45 AM    September through May
Summer Hours  6:30 – 6:45 AM    June through August

•  Plan on staying until the ramp is finished. Some ramps take longer than others due to size, complexity, and amount of on-site customization. If you must leave at a certain time, please make this known at the warehouse as ramp assignments are being made. On average, ramps are finished by 2:00 PM but that is not a guarantee. Please have your team members communicate any time conflicts with Dallas Ramp Project Leadership before leaving the warehouse.

•  Be prepared for safe construction workflip flops or similar shoes are unsafe and should not be worn. We also need to have at least two adults able to use an electric drill/screwdriver and assist other volunteers.

•  Bring drills (at least one for every two people), work gloves, lunch (or snacks), bug spray and sunscreen, and plenty of water.

•  Check for weather related updates on the Dallas home page after 6:00 A.M. on build days.

We’re sorry, but insurance prevents us from allowing kids under the age of 16 on the build site.  We also ask that there be at least two adult supervisors at the site (in case one has to leave and take someone somewhere, there would still be a supervisor on site for the remainder of the minors.
We cannot transport minors to/from the site.

Thank you for your support of the Dallas Ramp Project.
