The AmeriCorp Urban Safety MLK Volunteer Day was a huge success! The Mayor's office VISTA Volunteers took a 'day on, not a day off.' Located in District 1 in the area of Communications and Media Arts High School, over 9 abandoned homes were boarded up in conjunction with the safe routes to schools and vacant lot cleanups. Such a large multitude of volunteers turned up for the event that a project that was originally intended to take an entire day was completed before Noon. All and all it was a great partnership with the AmeriCorp Urban Safety Program and The Mayor’s Office VISTA Volunteers.
