|The completed mural that a group of young people worked on alongside artists from Xmental during the Belmont Service Day! You can find this mural on the side of C-Town on Belmont Ave and Thatford Ave!|
The launch of the Belmont Revitalization Project was a large service day that included street cleaning, graffiti removal, a church clean-up, greening of a vacant lot and the removal of dumping from side streets. The Justice Center and our volunteers were hosted by Pastor Derrick Harvey at the Total Recovery Worship Center!
|Over 100 volunteers were signed in and assigned to a clean-up project!|
|GRAAFICs youth crew helped out with the Belmont service day along with Monique Minter, a BAVP campaign advisory board member!|
|The NYCHA greening crew came to help out! They did an amazing job in a vacant lot on Thatford Ave and Belmont Ave!|
|Officer Cruz brought out her Brownsville young women's youth group "A Rose is Still a Rose" to join us in service!|
We are also in great gratitude to the all of our sister projects at the Center for Court Innovation. Service crews came all the way from Midtown, Red Hook, Newark and the Bronx to supervise service activities and got down and dirty with the rest of us! Team work makes the dream work!
|Our sister projects from the Center for Court Innovation came by to show us some love and lend a hand!|
|Cleaning crews filled the Belmont Ave business corridor!|
|A few of the crew worked on green tree pits with Rebecca, a volunteer from the New York Restoration Project!|
