Please join us for
Neighborhood Beautification Day

in Detroit 

A part of NeighborWorks Week

Saturday, June 1, 2019

8 a.m. - Noon


NeighborWorks America and its network of local organizations mobilize tens of thousands of volunteers, businesspeople, neighbors, friends, local and national elected and civic leaders in a week of neighborhood change and awareness.


This year’s event will be held on Saturday, June 1st from 8 a.m. to Noon. Volunteers will work in teams to pick up debris, remove small trees and shrubs, reclaim vacant lots, do light landscaping including planting flowers and mulching, clean sidewalks, streets and alleys, and paint porches to enhance the look and value of the Newberry neighborhood in southwest Detroit. Please dress for safety with closed toe shoes and long pants to prevent cuts and scratches.


We will gather at Southwest Solutions (new location) at 8 a.m. for registration, breakfast and coffee, orientation and assignments.  The address is 5716 Michigan Ave, Detroit 48210.


To volunteer, please complete the form below. You will receive email reminders closer to the event date. If friends, family members or colleagues will be accompanying you, please have each person complete a registration form as we will need a volunteer release/waiver of liability (below) for each volunteer.


Because this is a volunteer event, we ask you to bring gloves and tools. Please label your tools. Our plan is to use the tools you bring only at the site where you are working. You are welcome to then donate the tools for future projects.


If you have any questions, please email Chery Allen at
