Volunteer Opportunity with Future Blooms Chicago Street Project

JLB Blooms Volunteer Opportunity: The Buffalo Metro area has one of the highest inventories of vacant buildings in the nation. Complex problems demand creative solutions. The women of the Junior League of Buffalo are teaming together with local residents and community groups to revitalize area neighborhoods. Future Blooms is a neighborhood transformation program that uses art to restore identity to abandoned buildings while improving the appearance of community. It is modeled after a similar program first developed by Keep Cincinnati Beautiful. Volunteers paint doors, windows and flower boxes on the barricaded parts of abandoned buildings to make them appear new and in use. The painted facades add beauty and hope to an otherwise depressed streetscape.  First Ward native son and Buffalo artist, Vincent Alejandro, is donating his talents in support of the Future Blooms pilot project.  For additional information, click here or contact Kathleen Murphy, Future Blooms Program Coordinator at jlbfutureblooms@gmail.com.
