Love Your Block neighborhood cleanups
Spring cleaning opportunities include community gardens, pocket parks, public schools, and sidewalks. We are working to expand City of Boston volunteer opportunities to unite neighbors and communities through physical service, university engagement, and youth development.

Boston Shines is now renamed Love Your Block. It is still Boston's clean-up program in the spring, but it will now be part of a larger initiative promoting neighborhood revitalization. Through Love Your Block, you can:
- sign up for year-round cleanups
- apply for innovative beautification mini-grants, and
- eventually make use of City-provided tool sheds.
Tools will no longer be delivered to individual clean-up sites. Instead, volunteers will have a designated pick-up site that is central to their neighborhood. When volunteers return their tools after their project, there will be volunteer appreciation refreshments.
Please see the tool sites for Saturday cleanups. Your liaison will reach out with more specific details. If you signed up for a Friday cleanup, the liaison will arrange that with you.
You must register online for tools and t-shirts.
