Description

James Brower designs, creates, and sells personalized welcome mats at the Gribbin Center, a day program of Gallagher Services for adults with intellectual disabilities. And he needs some help! The last step of creating a welcome mat is the attachment of a rubber edge on both ends of the mat. But this requires the use of a wire cutter tool to cut and bend fourteen stainless steel rods. James, who uses a wheelchair and only has the use of his left hand, does not have enough grip strength to work the tool. 

We are looking for a volunteer who could visit James one per week and finish the mats he has completed that week. Would you be willing to help?
