Say & Play families cleanup blocks in their community

April 6th, 2018
Eduardo Estrella and others clean up along Ironside Street in southwest Detroit as part of a Say & Play family service learning project.

Several blocks in southwest Detroit are much tidier today, thanks to the efforts of 15 families in our Say & Play (Hablen y Jueguen con Palabras) program.

Family Service Learning is an essential part of the program, which is designed to increase the language skills and vocabulary of young children in low-income families. The families, who planned the volunteer project themselves, picked up trash, discarded tires and bulky items around Springwells, Cecil, and Dingerman Park.

“If we want a better neighborhood, we have to work together and make it happen,” said Eduardo Estrella, whose family participated in the cleanup. Say & Play is funded by PNC Bank, The Skillman Foundation and the Max M. & Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation.
