Building Better Neighborhoods, a NewsChannel 5 initiative will kick off its newest project on March 24 with anchors Danita Harris, Chris Flanagan, Lee Jordan, Leon Bibb and Tracy Carloss visiting 25 communities in 25 days in 5 separate Northeast Ohio counties.
CLEVELAND - NewsChannel5 is committed to Building Better Neighborhoods and we've teamed up with HandsOn Northeast Ohio to help clean up graffiti in Cleveland's Slavic Village neighborhood.
Volunteers from NewsChannel 5 will join other volunteers to paint over graffiti that has marred the neighborhood on Nov. 1.
Using spray paint, paint or markers to deface public property is a crime and can lead to jail time. Graffiti can hurt the appearance of neighborhoods and sometimes can be gang related, making residents feel unsafe.
Volunteers will spend about three hours removing graffiti before stopping for lunch provided by Chipotle.
