In 2018, approximately 700 volunteers spent the day working along South Ave. on the South Side of Youngstown. While working in the Taft Promise Neighborhood, we met neighbors who were thankful for the work we were doing. One father was happy to see there was actually a sidewalk in front of his house. Volunteers cleared the way so his young daughter can finally ride her bike.
Teams with the American Red Cross installed dozens of smoke detectors in homes. The other volunteers spent the day at 18 non-profit agencies throughout the Mahoning Valley.
