Grants in the form of in-kind donations valued at up to $100 to City of Mesa, Arizona residents, neighborhood groups, local businesses, church groups, and others who are planning to volunteer for a beautification, cleanup, or other community service project on the upcoming national day of service.

Landfill passes are available for either the Salt River Landfill or the San Tan Transfer Station. If awarded two landfill passes, applicants will be asked to specify a preference: Salt River landfill at 13602 N.
