On Thursday March 5th, volunteers from the Americorps VISTA program and PUSH Buffalo members and staff gathered together to clean out 10 Winter St., a vacant home that PUSH recently acquired.
We started working at 9:30 in the morning and didn't get done until 2 or so even though we had over 15 people (!) as there was an incredible amount of refuse packed into the single family home. PUSH's plans for 10 winter include the possibility of turning it into an Americorps Service House so Americorps could live in the neighborhood where they work although no final plans have been hammered out for the house, other than getting it in into livable shape.
Please feel free to check out all the great pictures of the day

We'd like to thank everyone who came out and helped, especially the VISTA members. We couldn't have done it without you!
