Donation of a lifetime

I have been blessed so much in my life by others and it was time to give back. I have raised 3 beautiful girls as a single mom most of their life. I have done Hair and Nails for 26 years, and then I went to college at the age of 40 after the girls were grown. Became an EMT, worked on an ambulance for two years, then went on to live my childhood dream as a flight attendant. In the last 6 months I have become a carpenter. I can't even believe I am doing this now and have never been happier in my life, except for being in the air. I was honored to be able to donate a 9 1/2 ft Farm Table and bench, 2 matching coffee tables and 2 end tables, to an all girls christian mentored home for them to help aid in their struggle with drugs and alcohol. This hits very close to home for me, my oldest daughter was saved by this wonderful Ministry. Her struggle almost killed her a year ago and I was so blessed by this ministry I took on this huge project without a second thought of all of the hard work that I was in for or the cost of all the wood this was going to take. I went to my local HOME DEPOT store that is always so helpful with all of my needs, and asked them to donate all the wood for this project. It was a God thing when Kyle the ASM said yes sure without a second thought himself. This whole project has touched so many, and will help so many girls for many years to come. Hoping they have a blessed new start to a new home and new year!
Big shout out to Ana White, Shanty-2-chic, Rouge Engineer! They have inspired every one of my builds thus far!

  • What a beautiful gift for a worthy institution! Thank you for sharing your story, and this inspirational project.

    • Thank you for your reply. This ministry is our labor of love. Since June of 2015 we have built 42 of these ramps with the longest being built Jan. 28, 2017 in Peachtree city ga. and being 48 feet long. With the help of 32 volunteers this was accomplished in only 4 1/2 hours. Thanks Ryobi, your tools were all over this build site.

  • I am writing for a wheelchair ramp ministry in Douglasville Ga. We build wheelchair ramps for needy folks rather they can afford to pay or not. If unable to pay for materials we build from our raised funds. We use Ryobi drills, impact guns, saws and blowers. We have two trailers that we take to the job site and each trailer carries Ryobi tools and a six port charger. The advantage of using Ryobi is when ever a battery dies we just go to the charging station and grab a fresh battery. Using so many differant Ryobi tools makes it so easy with one station charging twelve batteries at any time. Love our Ryobi tools. Still need a couple more tools but that will come in time and you can bet they will be Ryobi. Thank you Ryobi.
