The Boldt Company joined forces with Make-A-Wish Oklahoma to make one little Yukon girl’s dream a reality — an above-ground pool with a personalized deck and lift for accessibility.
Born prematurely, 7-year-old Montana faces many challenges, such as walking.
Swim therapy helps strengthen Montana’s legs while relieving some discomfort and providing an escape from the summer heat.
The pool was already in place, but a special deck and lift installation were necessary to help Montana get in and out of the water safely.
Boldt Project Executive Matthew Boersma led the volunteer effort to build the deck and install the lift.
“Serving the people who need it most is at the heart of what we do at Boldt, which is why we take every opportunity to use our construction skills to help others,” Boersma said. “The smile on Montana’s face made all the hard work worth it.”
The project took eight weeks to complete with the dedication of more than 30 Boldt employees, and the team even took advantage of volunteer time off (VTO) hours provided by the company.
Volunteer efforts ranged from forming and placing concrete pads to installing the lift equipment and constructing and sealing the deck.
“We are so thankful that Boldt was able to help on this wish experience for Montana,” said Madison Boyle, a representative with Make-A-Wish Oklahoma. “Because of this partnership, Boldt is allowing us to grant even more wishes to local wish kids.”
AT NO COST
Boldt’s work and the supplies needed to build the deck were provided at no cost to Montana’s family. Additionally, supplies donated by Chance Edmonds with Knock Out Junk Removal made the project a success.
