Volunteers Board and Clean Up 3 Homes at Rocky Ridge Workday

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

On Saturday, August 9th, volunteers boarded and cleaned up 3 vacant homes in the Rocky Ridge neighborhood on Youngstown's west side.

The workday was planned as a collaboration effort between the Rocky Ridge Neighborhood Association, Councilman Mike Ray, AmeriCorps NCCC, the City of Youngstown, and YNDC. In addition to boarding 3 structures, volunteers removed 93 tires, 30 bags of trash, and 40 cubic yards of debris from the properties. The volunteers also scraped 100 linear feet of sidewalk surrounding the blighted homes. The workday was followed by lunch at Striker's on Mahoning Avenue. Thank you to all of our volunteers for another great workday!

The next neighborhood workday is schedule for Saturday, August 23rd from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at 1206 Glenwood Avenue, Youngstown, OH, where we will continue clean up efforts on the corridor.
