Mr. WENSTRUP. Madam Speaker, I rise today to congratulate Greg Schneider, a UPS employee and CEO and Founder of Operation Ramp It Up, on earning the Jim Casey Community Service Award, the UPS' highest community service honor.

Operation Ramp it Up has helped veterans with physical disabilities and their families stay in their homes by providing access and equipment they need to move about as independently and freely as possible. A few years ago, Operation Ramp it Up began installing ramps for civilians as well.

The dedication of Greg and other volunteers like him has made a profound difference for communities across 42 U.S. states. In 2020, I have been fortunate to join Greg Schneider and his team for multiple ramp builds over the years in Southwest Ohio. I was impressed by their commitment.

Their work has led to the installation of over 150 wheelchair ramps. They will stop at nothing until they have built ramps in all 50 states and helped as many people and families as possible.

Again, congratulations to Greg on his well-deserved award for his work on Operation Ramp it Up.
