On Saturday, March 28th, volunteers braved the cold conditions to fight blight on Bennington Avenue on the east side. Eight houses were boarded, 188 tires were removed, and over 40 cubic yards of trash and debris were discarded. Participating volunteer groups included: YSUScape, YNDC, AmeriCorps VISTA and REVITALIZE, neighborhood residents, community volunteers, and first ward Councilwoman Annie Gillam. Pizza Joe's on McCartney Road and Councilwoman Annie Gillam were sponsors for the event. FIGHT BLIGHT.
