Kindness and can-do spirit were on full display last month as 750 volunteers tackled dozens of community projects across The American Dream City.

The Unite Arlington community service weekend was organized by Engage Arlington, a collaboration of churches seeking to create a communitywide movement of working together for the betterment of Arlington. During Unite Arlington, volunteers, including dozens of city employees, participated in efforts such as much-needed home repairs and yard maintenance for seniors, school beautification projects and public park clean ups. More than 100 projects in total were completed.

Partnering for events such as the community cleanup initiative is just one of the many ways the City of Arlington continues working to Champion Great Neighborhoods, which the Arlington City Council has identified as one of five key priorities. Great neighborhoods contribute to a higher quality of life and greater investment in our economy.

You can read about this project and more in the latest addition of the Champion Great Neighborhoods newsletter. All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are produced in a digital formal, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.
