Madge Coiro, Alexandria Bay, NY
2019 Alexandria Bay Ron McLennan Immediate Need recipient
Madge is a life long resident of Alexandria Bay. She has worked all her life, raising her daughter by herself after her husband passed away. Madge's home is in need of a new roof. She also has very bad arthritis which makes it difficult to use stairs. Donations from Betterment went towards a new roof for the house. It also went towards making a new landing for a ramp for Madge to use to get in and out of her house easier. The ramp was donated by previous recipient Lisa & John Slate. Lisa & John no longer need the ramp that Betterment installed for them in 2008.
