Volunteers spread out across the North End on Saturday morning for the annual “Love Your Block” neighborhood cleanup. T-shirts and tools were distributed as groups went off to various streets, parks and alleys to get things spruced up for Spring. We counted Eliot School students, NEWNC members along with RUFF North End and many park advocates joining in the effort.

Formerly known as Boston Shines, Mayor Marty Walsh rebranded the initiative this year as “Love Your Block.” The spring cleaning program encourages residents to get involved in their neighborhoods by gathering to help clean up the streets with a few hours of volunteering.

Members of the North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) tackled the difficult space at Cutillo Park on Stillman Street including Tania Green, Ashley McCarthy, John Pregmon, and Brett Roman.
