Every year, we coordinate National Arab American Service Day in the spring. This service day encourages Arab American communities across the U.S. to give back through service, fostering a culture of leadership, community engagement and volunteerism. This year, National Arab American Service Day is being held on Saturday, May 13th.
We are excited to inform you that we are partnering with Neinas Elementary, Academy of Americas, and Covenant House's Academy for service day this year. Other partners include: U of M Dearborn, Greening of Detroit, and Bridgepointe. Over 400 volunteers will gather on May 13th to work on a variety of projects at these locations. The projects were identified by each of the schools, and will ultimately benefit 1,300+ students in the area.
The event location will be held at Neinas Elementary School: 6021 McMillan St., Detroit, MI 48209
The projects include: alley clean-ups, grounds keeping, graffiti removal, playground improvements, development of a clothing closet, and interior painting and clean-ups. In addition, we are helping construct a new community park across from Neinas Elementary---Alayna Elabed's Brighter Neinas Community Park. The park will include a soccer field, nature path, and picnic tables.
Breakfast and Lunch will be provided.
