Register Here for the 

14th Annual NEIGHBORHOODS DAY
Saturday, August 1, 2020  8am - 9pm

YES, VIRGINIA; THERE WILL BE A NEIGHBORHOODS DAY IN DETROIT!


LIKE SO MANY other organizations, ARISE Detroit! has been confronted with the unprecedented challenge of surviving and serving in the face of the COVID-19 health crisis.

 

Specifically, how could we possibly have our 14th Annual ARISE Detroit! Neighborhoods Day on Saturday, August 1, without endangering the thousands of people who participate with events all over the city.
 

STAY SAFE: CREATE IN YOUR SPACE

 

HOW IT WILL WORK

 

  • All Neighborhoods Day participants are urged to practice social distancing and refrain from events that draw crowds.

  • Churches, block clubs and community groups that register will have their neighborhood networks engage in a variety of activities, many of them in their own spaces, homes, businesses, etc. This can be done without crowds.

  • Activate Your Block. Community groups can register individually and encourage block residents to devise their Neighborhoods Day events at their homes.

  • Registration fee reduced from $50 to $25.

  • Cleanup bags and enlarged yard signs with the name of each registered organization will be provided. Participants are encouraged to display their banners and wear t-shirt of past Neighborhoods Days. Should we be able to secure funding, we will add hardware vouchers for beautification projects and t-shirts for your event.

 

POSSIBLE NEIGHBORHOODS DAY ACTIVITIES



  1.  Individual blight removal and beautification of homes and businesses with no more than 10 volunteers participating and practicing social distancing with face masks and gloves
