Donated labor and materials help Police Athletic League
The Youngstown Police Athletic League is getting a new roof on its headquarters building on Southern Boulevard — with a little help from its friends.
Several companies were on hand Friday to help clean up the inside and outside of the building as well as put on the roof and those companies donated both labor and materials for the effort.
The effort was spearheaded by Gregg D’Angelo of ABC Supply, who learned of the need when Patrolman Ed Colon, who heads up YPAL, answered a trespassing call at ABC Supply in March. From there, the effort grew.
Colon said he hopes the building can be up and running in a month and that YPAL plans to bring back its baseball and basketball leagues next year.
