Friday, March 8, 2019

ServeOhio awarded YNDC a $1,000 grant to engage volunteers in a service project in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr..

YNDC engaged approximately 30 volunteers in the cleanup of multiple vacant properties in the Newport neighborhood on Youngstown's south side, where volunteers cleared nearly 40 cubic yards of debris and overgrowth from vacant properties to improve neighborhood safety and quality of life. Volunteers installed solar security lights to vacant properties to help improve neighborhood safety. ServeOhio is Ohio's commission on service and volunteerism.
