Volunteers gave their time and expertise to build a ramp for an 11-year-old Auburn boy last Saturday.

Trenton Heuring Smart was born with cerebral palsy and has seizures. He can’t walk or speak. The ramp will help caregivers transport him in and out of his home for safely.

The ramp was made possible through the efforts of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, Dunn Lumber, Pacific Lumber Inspection Bureau and volunteers.

Mayor Nancy Backus stopped by to visit Smart, his family and caregivers and thank the volunteers.

Members of the Master Builders Association, through dedication, hard work, and the donation of their time and talent, continue to work to improve the lives of individuals and families in communities. Since 1993, more than 440 ramps have been built and $1.7 million of in-kind donations provided.
