YNDC getting $35,000 for workshop
YOUNGSTOWN — The Home Savings Charitable Foundation is donating $25,000 to the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp. for its community workshop facility.
The YNDC is building the workshop to conduct planning, training, agricultural and neighborhood project activities at its location at 820 Canfield Road. The construction of the community workshop facility is designed to bolster the ability of the YNDC to serve low-income neighborhoods across the city and help resident groups conduct neighborhood improvement activities.
The workshop would provide saws and power tools for those wanting to cut wood to be used to board up vacant properties in the city as well as for housing repairs and gardens, said Ian Beniston, YNDC’s deputy director.
In addition to Home Savings donation, the J. Ford Crandall Foundation is providing the remaining $10,000 to build the $35,000 facility.
