Neighborhood Beautification Day


Neighborhood Beautification Day 2018

Our annual Neighborhood Beautification Day this year was Saturday, June 2 from 8 a.m. until 12:00 noon.

The event kick-offed at the Ford Resource and Engagement Center (The Mercado) at 8 a.m. for registration, breakfast tacos and coffee, orientation and assignments. Volunteers worked in teams to install or refresh flower beds and community gardens, weed and mulch, paint, and clear overgrown brush and debris at community locations in southwest Detroit.

Pictures from this year’s event can be found on our Facebook page. Southwest Solutions’ Neighborhood Beautification Day is part of a national and week-long effort sponsored by NeighborWorks America.

This was the 12th consecutive year for the annual event. Once again, it was truly a collaborative effort of organizations, businesses, community groups and individuals committed to community service and the continuing revitalization of southwest Detroit. We thank our event sponsors for their support:
