DETROIT - Registration is open for community groups, block clubs, churches and businesses to be part of the sixth annual ARISE Detroit! Neighborhoods Day, which will be held Saturday, Aug. 4 in neighborhoods throughout Detroit.


The day is a spectacular demonstration of community pride with more than 100 community service and improvement projects and celebratory events in more than 100 neighborhoods.


Last year, nearly 170 events were held on ARISE Detroit! Neighborhoods Day, stretching from the riverfront to Eight Mile Road. Hundreds of organizations and thousands of volunteers participated.


The idea behind the event is to create an opportunity to showcase the pride and spirit of neighborhoods and forge relationships that can help improve the quality of life for city residents going forward.


Groups can register at or phone 313-921-1955.




We are also looking for ARISE Detroit! Neighborhoods Day Ambassadors, people who will volunteer to sign up groups to register and help make this the biggest Neighborhoods Day ever, one that will turn into a positive national story for Detroit. If you are interested, register to become a Neighborhoods Day Ambassador by clicking on this link:
