The fundraiser to purchase building materials for boarding up the Wildroot building on Bailey Avenue has been a success. Building materials will be purchased this week in anticipation of the clean-up/board-up at the building this Saturday, October 12th from 10am to 2pm. BYP is hosting the event and all skill levels and people are welcome to join. You can RSVP to the event on their Facebook page here.
Plans for the event include securing the exterior of the building to ensure vandals no longer get access, clearing the large lot of debris and growth, and general small repairs before the winter seasons comes to Buffalo. If you have anytime this Saturday just show up for whatever period you can, every person makes a difference.
The building is not accessible from Bailey Avenue so people will be meeting on the side of the building at Fay Street and West Shore Avenue, which is accessible from either Bailey or Walden Avenue. Tools and materials will be provided, but if you have an extra rake or shovel feel free to bring it just to be safe.
