Volunteers from Unite Here Local 26 swept and picked up litter on Bremen Street at Boston Shines 2012.

East Boston Main Streets invites volunteers to spend a Saturday beautifying the neighborhood as part of the 11th annual Boston Shines campaign.

The organization will gather with volunteers in Maverick Square at 9 a.m. on April 27 to clean nearby streets, add fresh mulch to sidewalk tree pits, and to plant new flowers in flower beds. After completing work in Maverick, the group will proceed to Central Square to make the same improvements there.

The Main Streets group invites families to participate as a group and will provide gloves, t-shirts, and brooms.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Max Gruner at 617-561-1044 or mgruner@ebmainstreets.com.
