Teens Build Bus Stop Shelter For Disabled 5-Year-Old To Protect Him From The Bad Weather

A group of kind-hearted teenagers, has built a bus shelter for a disabled child who was getting wet while waiting for his school bus on the driveway outside his home.


5-year-old Ryder Killam from Rhode Island was forced to wait in the rain each day for his bus as no shelter existed. Up until that point, he did use an umbrella, but this was little protection from the weather of a Rhode Island winter. Ryder's father, Tim, explained:


"The problem is with the wind and fall weather here in New England it really didn't accomplish much unless it was just a rainy day with no wind, otherwise he still would get wet and not stay warm."


Wanting things to be changed, Tim posted on Facebook asking if anyone had the expertise or knowledge to build a small shelter.


Tim said:


"I placed a post on Facebook looking to see if one of my friends or one of their connections might have an old bus hut. I see them here and there on people's property and figured maybe someone had one and had grown children that might not need it anymore. After the post, a WPS member suggested I reach out to the construction class at Westerly High and see if they would want to take on the project of building Ryder a bus stop hut."


Dan McKena, a tech teacher at Westerly High School, responded to Tim and sent along a team of teenage students to complete the project, which was built with donated wood from the local community.


Over a couple of weeks, an amazing new construction was built making sure Ryder doesn't get wet again.


Tim says of the new construction:


"Ryder uses it every day before school and his nurses wait inside it every day while they await his return home. He does like to go hang out in it from time to time as his fort as well. This project brought out community together a bit, it showed that there is still so much good in this world and town!"
