Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup: BustUp edition

For the past two summers, I’ve joined Motor City Connect in their combined effort with Motor City Blight Busters to demolish blighted homes and clean up an area neighborhood.

This year WXYZ-TV and anchorman Stephen Clark are also uniting in the cause and taking part. The BustUp, as they're calling it, features a street party with food and music.

Volunteers are still needed!

I’ve met incredible people, had a great time and did some good in the community during this event. So, what are you doing this Saturday, June 25th? We’d love for you to join us.

Check out the Facebook events page for more information.
