The Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley Monday announced the award of more than $1.4 million in grants and distributions for the second half of 2015.

Volunteers from the community, local organizations and colleges helped fix houses, board up homes and install smoke detectors Monday as part of the annual national Martin Luther King Jr. ''Day of Service."

With the city stepping up its efforts this year to demolish more vacant structures, it must first know what buildings and houses need to come down and their conditions.

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday is a day off for many in the Valley, but for others it's a chance to give back to the community.

Fighting blight one house at a time, volunteers helped the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation (YNDC) board up 20 vacant homes on the city’s north side.
