The Southern Indiana Center for Independent Living is looking for volunteers who would help install ramps and do other home modifications for Orange County residents who have disabilities. According to Orange County Outreach Coordinator Ralph Purkhiser, SICIL has been purchasing materials for ramps and other projects using funds from a grant from the Smithville Foundation and other donated funds. However, some of the projects are on hold because of the need for volunteers to provide labor for the projects. Anyone interested in helping Orange Countians with disabilities should call SICIL at 812-277-9626 or contact Ralph Purkhiser at 812-936-9323. We have pending projects in several areas of Orange County.
