This week, more than fifty volunteers from Circleville, Ohio came to Colfax Road to repair porches for eight residents of Colfax Road. Work was performed in conjunction with BBC’s Bridgeport Model Block program, and was completed at no charge to the homeowners. Lighthouse, Inc. (the Heaventrain), Ward 5 Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland, BBC, and a core group of committed community members helped make the event possible.
Tom Beres of WKYC Channel 3 was moved by the work of the volunteers and filmed an excellent story that aired on the 6pm and 7pm newscasts on Tuesday, July 8. Click on the video below to watch the story.
