Wednesday, volunteers helped build a wheelchair ramp in front of a veteran’s home.

Rebuilding Together Twin Cities built the ramp with support from Republic Services.

"If we were to contract this project out, it’d be about $15,000. By having Republic sponsor and build the ramp, we’re letting (Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans) take that $15,000 and use it toward another program," Tony Sjogren, the program director for Rebuilding Together Twin Cities, said.

A group of volunteers built a ramp for another veteran Tuesday.

Rebuilding Together Twin Cities said it has built nearly 100 ramps for veterans since 1997.
