RAM and Home Healthsmith help Boys and Girls Club in Rhode Island

As part of the RIBA (Rhode Island Builders Association) show this year there was some local involvement from various trade schools and high school students. The result of their efforts was an amazing tree house structure that was set up at the show. The project was conceived to highlight trades in Rhode Island.

 

The Tree House will also be dismantled at the end of the show and donated to The Boys and Girls Club.

 

One of RAM’s Sealer Partners. Home Healthsmith, got involved with the project and donated a lift to accompany the treehouse. The team from Home Healthsmith did a great job installing the lift at the show and some images of the project are shown below.

 

RAM is pleased to be associated with this event and cause as it was also highlighted with the State Senator and Both Congressmen who attended the show for the ribbon cutting event!
