This fall, neighborhood groups and individual residents conducted cleanups at over 15 sites with more than 300 Flint residents participating. NEH asked community leaders to identify blighted areas in their neighborhoods and to allocate funds for resources. These resources were used during the cleanup and included tools, equipment, and local contractors who provided blight elimination services. Residents were able to keep all of the tools for future cleanups, and lunch was provided for volunteers.
Trash bags, yard waste bags, and working gloves were provided through a generous donation from Keep Genesee County Beautiful.
