Ameren Illinois volunteers build wheelchair ramp for veteran
More than 20 volunteers from Ameren Illinois spent their Veterans Day building a wheelchair ramp at the home of a Collinsville veteran and his wife. Jack Hood, a U.S. Army veteran who served between the Korean and Vietnam wars, was the recipient. Both he and his wife, Millie, use canes to move around, so the ramp will make it easier for them to leave the house. “I’m just dazed by all this attention we’re getting,” Jack says.
