Call for Projects for 2014 Clean the D

March 27, 2014 12:38 PM | Deleted user

2013 projects included repainting Viking Boxing Gym with Challenge Detroit

May 3rd brings the return of one of our signature events, 8MBA Clean The D. This massive volunteer-led effort brings together hundreds of students, corporate team members, neighborhood block groups, and more to spend the day on a corridor-wide beautification blitz, including cleaning, planting, painting, and weeding projects at specific sites along Eight Mile.

The event not only fights blight by enhancing the aesthetic appearance of the corridor, but it unites a highly diverse group of stakeholders – students and workers, young and old, urban and suburban – around the common cause of civic engagement. By connecting our greater regional community at Eight Mile, where all assemble to make a difference, 8MBA Clean the D helps flip the script on an outdated perception of Eight Mile as a regional divider.

As Clean the D continues to grow each year, 8MBA continually invites individuals and groups to submit project ideas for our dedicated volunteer groups to tackle, or to join us out on Eight Mile.

If you have a project idea on Eight Mile Road that you would like us to consider for Clean the D 2014, or if you’d like to roll up your sleeves and join us, please contact Steve Horstman via email at steve@eightmile.org.
