That's the idea of ARISE Detroit's Neighborhood Day, planned for Saturday. Throughout Detroit, nonprofits, churches, community groups and corporate sponsors have organized nearly 200 neighborhood cleanups, home buildings, health fairs, health screenings, anti-crime rallies, youth concerts and other events to showcase the work of area nonprofits. (They'll take your volunteer applications too.)

The day is coordinated by ARISE Detroit, the coalition of community organizations spearheaded by Luther Keith, a former Detroit News editor who has taken on improving Detroit as his post-newspaper career.

For a complete listing of events, see arisedetroit.org.
