"Volunteering for Clean & Clear we hope will become a staple for residents, visitors and business owners," James Little, Neighborhood District Manager for REV Birmingham, said. "There are always many projects and needs to tackle ... and we hope to see how much our community can get done during these events."


"It's a great opportunity for area residents, visitors and businesses to explore the area while giving some TLC, “Little said. "Also, if anyone in the community notices a troublesome spot—litter, graffiti, etc.—we can add it to the list to address during the next during Clean & Clear."


We hope that beautification efforts like this will help to create a higher quality of life by attracting visitors, residents, reduce crime, encourage new businesses, new residents and create pride in neighborhood that we live, work and worship.
