COALITION OF CITIES
“Cities of Service is a coalition of approximately 200 cities whose mayors are committed to using volunteer service to solve local pressing challenges. Many cities hire chief service officers to drive and increase the reach and impact of their efforts. From helping to decrease high school dropout rates to increasing energy efficiency in city buildings, coalition members work together, learn from each other, establish and replicate best practices to improve lives in their cities, across the United States, and around the world.” –Cities of Service
The City of Lansing has joined this coalition and has been selected for the Cities of Service grant to implement the Love Your Block blueprint.
