Ever wanted to do demolition? Here’s your chance!

An important announcement received today:

Support the work of Catalyst Community Partners (CCP) by participating in a building demolition on West Broadway Avenue in North Minneapolis.

The former Delisi building on the corner of Penn Avenue North and West Broadway in North Minneapolis is being gutted and rehabbed to make room for the new home of KMOJ Radio and a potential restaurant. To save on construction costs, we are recruiting 20 volunteers a day for demolition work this coming Friday and Saturday, October 2 and 3 from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.

Volunteers are needed to remove large amounts of trash, haul out old furniture and carpet, demolish walls and a couple of walk in coolers. All of the hazardous material has been removed and an air filter machine will run for 24 hours before crews arrive to freshen the interior air.

Food and beverages will be provided on the work site.

To sign up, please contact Terry Egge at tegge@pohladfamilygiving.org. In your email, please provide:
1. Day(s) you are able to work
2. Tools you may be able to bring
3. Whether or not you will need a pair of work gloves
We anticipate that volunteer slots will fill up quickly so please respond by Thursday, October 1st at 1pm.

Thank you for your interest. We promise it will be a fun and exhausting experience!

  1. I think many in our community have had enough demolition. Most neighborhoods have several vacant lots that they are concerned about.

    I realize that the intent of this post is to recruit participants in a project to improve the community , but I think that the wording really underestimates a very sensitive issue.

  2. Leave demolition work to the professionals
