Our Story

Block By Block is a volunteer community-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, participating in making Philadelphia the cleanest city in America.

We're the clean-up crew you didn't know you needed – David, Amanda, Xavier, and Hudsyn, a family with a passion for tidying up Philly, one block at a time!

We've always been those folks on our street with brooms in hand making sure our block stayed spick and span. But in June 2020 as the world was navigating the pandemic, we decided to turn our enthusiasm for clean streets into something bigger, something more meaningful.

We have been organizing Block by Block Community Cleanups all over Philly, from Fishtown to Fairmount, South Philly to Brewerytown, and trust us, we've only just started to scratch the surface. Our city is brimming with opportunities to shine brighter, and we're ready to take on the challenge.

But here's the thing: we can't do it alone, and we don't want to! We're calling on fellow Philly enthusiasts to join us in our quest for cleanliness. Whether you want to get your hands dirty at our cleanups, donate to support our cause, or simply want to engage with us and spread the clean vibes, there's a role for everyone.

Join us, connect with us, and let's clean these streets together – block by block.
