Community Cleanup and Volunteer Block Party


The community cleanup started as a grassroots effort in 2009 when a pair of westside residents got together with their neighbors! This event grew into a larger effort since and most recently had over 600 participants! This year, we spread the event out to make it more accessible to neighbors. We are focusing our cleanup efforts in multiple neighborhoods in the City of Grand Rapids. A block party for volunteers will be held at John Ball Zoo after the cleanup. Learn more
