Reviving the Laundry Building

26 interns are currently putting a new roof on the Sheldon Jackson Campus’ historic Laundry Building, the first phase of a project to eventually turn the ruined building into a community cafe and art gallery. Crew Leader Larry Jackson and interns Stephanie Gilardi and Lisa Huang, members of the Sitka Fine Arts Camp’s Historic Renovation Program, visit the KCAW studio to talk about the program that brings young people to Sitka to help with renovation projects on the campus. The effort to revitalize the Laundry Building – the last building on the campus in need of restoration – is called the Save It or Lose It campaign.
