Motor City Makeover

Motor City Makeover 365 is an annual citywide volunteer cleanup and beautification initiative. Over the past 30 years MCM 365 has evolved, partnering with block clubs and associations on their efforts has become essential to the success of this initiative. Annually, thousands of volunteers across Detroit come together to clean and beautify neighborhoods, parks, playgrounds, and around businesses, schools, and places of worship. Beautification and clean-ups projects take place three Saturdays in May based on City Council Districts. 

Take Part!!  In addition to these clean-up efforts, we encourage beautification efforts all year round. For example, get involved with Earth Day events, flower planting, Neighborhood Day, anti-litter campaigns, Safe Routes to Schools, or recycling training and other events!
