KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) – Around 800 volunteers came out to help board up businesses in Kenosha on Wednesday, August 26.
The organization, Downtown Kenosha, is helping get volunteers together. Leaders say they’ve received around $30,000 worth of donations in plywood.

The group was able to board-up businesses in the downtown area and is now focusing on the city’s Uptown District. Some areas are still inaccessible, so they hope major clean-up can begin next week.
"It’s been overwhelming in a fantastic way, people have reached out now only on our social media volunteer groups to be added, they just show up," Downtown Kenosha Alexandria Binanti said.
Binanti said the group plans on being out in the city cleaning up every day. Downtown Kenosha also hopes to create a grant recovery program for businesses.
