Neighborhood Beautification Day 2019

Our 13th annual Neighborhood Beautification Day this year will be Saturday, June 1 from 8 a.m. until 12:00 noon. Every year, hundreds of volunteers come together for this special event to beautify sites in southwest Detroit. We hope you can join us! To volunteer, please click here.

This year’s event will kick off at 5716 Michigan Avenue at 8 a.m. for registration, breakfast and coffee, orientation and assignments. Volunteers will work in teams in the nearby Newberry neighborhood, where Southwest Solutions has started a unique and important project that will enable up to 60 families to transition from renters to homeowners. The volunteer teams will help clean up and restore vacant lots, do minor landscaping, plant flowers, paint porches, and more.

Neighborhood Beautification Day is truly a collaborative effort of organizations, businesses, community groups and individuals committed to community service and the continuing revitalization of southwest Detroit.

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