Natural Awakenings Philadelphia

Block Captains Coordinate City Beautification Efforts

For more than 70 years, the Philadelphia More Beautiful Committee (PMBC) has helped bring positive change to neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia through a network of dedicated block captains. They constantly work to organize events, provide support and empower residents to come together for a more beautiful city.

Their mission is more than just cleaning our streets; it’s giving neighborhoods a cause to rally behind and take pride in together. It means encouraging neighbors to do their part and come together to secure an even greater quality of life for families.

More than 9,000 cleaning and beautification activities take place each year—with 90,000-plus volunteers assisting block captains, their neighbors, community groups and their units to beautify city blocks all over town.
