Equal parts patience and fun, and I had an incredible time
“I wanted to extend my thanks to the StopGap Foundation for inviting us in for the day to help paint ramps. It ranks as one of my best days of the year. The kindness, generosity and compassion of the team is evident in everything they do: from providing information to me and my fellow volunteers about the mission and value of StopGap, to instructing us on the best way to paint (there’s a technique!), Velanie, Haley Rae and Luke were equal parts patience and fun, and I had an incredible time laughing and learning and painting. Thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of the StopGap mission for the day!”
It was a great experience“It was a great experience to participate and to know that a ramp I help paint was going to be used by a specific vendor.”
We are always striving to provide equal access
Here at Charlie’s having a StopGap ramp in our space has significantly improved our customer, volunteer, and staff’s experience using the entrance. As a bike shop, the obvious benefit is the ease of entering and exiting the shop with a bike in hand, but it’s also added so much more. We are always striving to provide equal access to everyone in the community, and to be an ally whenever we can. Because we are both a shop, and community charity space it meant a lot to us to be able to make our storefront accessible. Thank you StopGap!
