“I am hoping that other candidates will participate. This is the third cleanup project that Campaign Gaines for Detroit has spearheaded and requested assistance from other candidates. If you love the City of Detroit, let’s pitch in. Your sweat equity will show Detroit if you love your city”, stated Gaines.
Supporters and volunteers are welcome to join in the clean up initiative. “Come when you can with a broom, rake or shovel in hand”, says Gaines. The central location headquarters of this project will be located at 14873 Ohio Detroit, MI 48238. Food, beverages and activities will be available for participants.
