Volunteers are taking part in an effort to beautify the city and a number of Detroit Public Schools before the start of classes in September.

Groups are working inside and outside school buildings Saturday as part of ARISE Detroit! Neighborhoods Day.

The cafeteria, walls and lockers are being painted at Paul Robeson Malcolm X Academy. An abandoned home is being boarded up near Beckham Academy. Wayne State University students are removing old furniture and cleaning rooms at Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine.

The grounds around Thurgood Marshall Elementary School also are being cleaned.

Some businesses and groups involved in the projects include the Kayrouz law offices, Wayne State University, Handyman Ministries and the Cody Rouge Community Action Alliance.

Some vacant houses also are being demolished.
