Volunteers spruced up Slavic Village during the second-annual volunteer Community Day conducted by Slavic Village Recovery on the corner of E. 59th Street and Huss Street in Slavic Village on Friday, May 9, 2014. The rain did not deter 65 volunteers who helped build a Slavic Village neighborhood green area on three adjacent corners. Huge excavators, donated from Lightning Demolition and Excavating, helped plant maple, oak, ginkgo and serviceberry trees around new cement walkways. A hardy grass will be planted soon. Slavic Village Recovery’s mission is to ” combine public, non-profit and for-profit enterprise with a unified vision to rehabilitate single-family homes in a concentrated area, creating affordable housing and bringing large-scale change to Slavic Village.” Employees from Forest City Enterprises, Safeguard Properties, SecureView and Slavic Village Development volunteered their time today. Materials, equipment and other support were also donated by Cuyahoga Land Bank, LivinStone and Lightning Demolition and Excavating.
