On Saturday, April 22, 2017, from 8 a.m. to noon, Wayne State University and Midtown Detroit Inc. will partner to make a difference in the Midtown community. The goal is to clean and beautify Midtown one block at a time and make Detroit a more beautiful city in which to live, work, learn and play.

Join hundreds of WSU community members as we clean up and revitalize Midtown. Volunteers will work in teams that will fan throughout the area to beautify and clean up the neighborhood.

Volunteer check-in begins at 8 a.m. on the first floor of the WSU Welcome Center. Lunch will be provided at the end of the volunteer day. A limited amount of street parking is available, as well as parking in Structure 6 ($8.50 for visitors; OneCard accepted).

Midtown Makeover will take place rain or shine, so please be prepared for the weather. Also, as most of the work involves cleaning, planting or painting, please wear appropriate attire. This includes closed- toed shoes, long sleeves and clothing that can get a little dirty.
