Moross Greenway Project working hard to clean up Detroit neighborhood

A Detroit neighborhood is looking a lot greener these days thanks to the work of some volunteers.

The goal of the Moross Greenway Project is to clean up the seven islands on Moross between I-94 and St. John Hospital on Detroit's east side.

The project raises money to mow the lawns, plant trees and re-landscape the area. Sunday was one of two days a year where volunteers pick up trash. They want the area to look the way it's supposed to.

"This is a very strong community," said Sheila O'Hara, president of the Moross Greenway board. "This area is known as the cornerstone neighborhood, and it's still a very strong neightborhood. We felt that this was important to help secure the neighborhood and to help people feel proud of where they live."
