"Its a great chance to give back to a city that has given so much to me," said volunteer Keely Czartoski with Quicken Loans. "Being part of a bigger picture and helping the community is important."

On Santa Clara, we saw Motor City Blight Busters volunteers also helping out. They're extending their reach one brick at a time.

"We will be removing an additional 7 abandoned home," said John George. "And expanding farm city [urban garden] another two blocks to three blocks. Everything we grow we give away, we'll just have more to give.

The thousands of people who donated their time Saturday spread out across Detroit. More than 200 beautification and building projects are underway throughout the city proving the passion of the people and the resilience of those who live, work and visit here. That teamwork is making a difference.
