Urban Development Corporation (UDC) is a nonprofit organization trying to bring stablization, revitalization and sustainability to a 9-block inner-city Detroit neighborhood on the Northeast Side of Detroit.

UDC is seeking to recruit individuals, corporations and civic groups willing to volunteer their time to help with the landscape of abandoned vacant houses. Significant progress has been made but we still could use additinal helping hands. Currently, we need help with grass cutting and vegetation and debris removal.

Individuals, corporations, churches and civic groups are welcome to participate. Make helping improve inner-city Detroit neighborhoods a few hours of fun. If April 28th is not a good day feel free to select another day and time if you have a group of 10 or more volunteers.
