Love your Block Birmingham
Through Love Your Block Birmingham, thousands of volunteers in the city cleaned over 26,000 square feet of graffiti, disposed of more than 135,000 pounds of trash and debris, and planted over 500 trees. This important work came on the heels of a tornado that devastated parts of Birmingham. In addition to its own city match, the mayor’s office leveraged 25 new sources of private sector funding to help revitalize neighborhoods.
"When Birmingham was announced as one of 18 cities selected for an Impact Volunteering Fund grant in October 2012, this was a major step forward as we move towards a better Birmingham – today and beyond."Mayor William Bell
