Graffiti is a problem for any city and Canton, Ohio is no exception to the rule. Studies have shown that "minor" crimes like graffiti send a message to criminals and citizens alike that it is okay to break the law in that area: That nobody will stop you: That nobody cares.
Luckily, somebody does care. Project Rebuild is a non-profit, working to give young adults in Stark County the opportunity and skills they need to succeed. In their effort to focus on community service, Project ReBuild students will be doing a graffiti cover-up on Friday, April 20th. They'll be hitting the streets with paint, cleaning supplies and the elbow grease needed to clean up the Hall of Fame City, but they need to know where to go.
To report graffiti that you'd like to see covered, send an email to CoverUp@ProjectRebuild.com with the address or cross streets of the infraction along with your name, contact info and if possible pictures of the graffiti. Rebuild will send students out on the 20th and do their best to make Canton a graffiti-free city.
