2020 Six Day Project – Oct. 5-10, 2020

In response to COVID-19, we have had to change the way we organize our Six Day Project this year. Please see below for details.

We are prepared to mobilize a maximum of 5,000 volunteers over six days. However, in addition to community residents who are volunteering with us, we are only accepting volunteers from organizations who are mobilizing groups of at least 5 volunteers. There is no maximum number of volunteers your organization can send, because we will spread them out among several projects, while always maintaining social distancing of at least 10 feet.

We prioritize group registrations from organizations who intend to join our 313 Club this year. Learn more about the 313 Club here.

If you fit within the parameters and above, you may request to register your group here.

Health and Safety

Below are the measures we are doing to keep our volunteers safe and healthy during the Six Day Project:

  • Volunteers will be distanced at least 10 feet at all times.
  • All tools will be pre-sanitized before use.
  • Volunteers will drive their own vehicles to the project site.
  • Each volunteer team will work on one block, and one block only. Blocks will be limited to 10-30 individuals per block, to keep volunteers spread apart.
  • No tool swapping/sharing will take place. Whichever tool you use that day (lawn mower, weed wacker, loppers, rake or shovel) will be used by you and you only.
  • Volunteers are required to bring their own masks, gloves and water. There will be additional masks, gloves and plenty of water available.

In 2019, 9,713 volunteers from the city and surrounding suburbs helped us address 257 heavily blighted alleyways surrounding the Durfee Innovation Society, host a summer camp for 125 children and a basketball camp for 37 youth, and our Family Fun Day (with the largest bounce house in the world) drew in more than 3,000 Detroit kids and their families.

In the past, Life Remodeled made only one year investments into neighborhoods. However, in 2017, we committed to investing three to five years per community as we move forward. We will remain focused exclusively on the Durfee/Central community until September 2021. After that, we will begin investing in another Detroit neighborhood, but we will continue to lead the Durfee Innovation Society indefinitely.
