POLAND, Ohio (WYTV) – The Blackburn Home in Poland celebrated a big anniversary on Tuesday.
The retirement facility celebrates its 85th year in business. They announced upgrades that couldn’t have been done without some help.
The Youngstown Foundation donated $20,000 to build a new entrance ramp for residents and visitors. The director says they needed a safe ramp with a roof.
“We just wanted to make sure that it was safe for all the residents and it took a lot of time to finalize and work with our architect, but she did a wonderful job helping us design the ramp,” said Director Michelle Rudge.
The new ramp was dedicated Tuesday.
The Blackburn Home provides low-cost housing, meals and other services to seniors in the area.
