Block Blitz Volunteer Information

What is Block Blitz?

Thank you for your interest in Block Blitz! This event is not possible without contributions from our corporate sponsors and individual volunteers like you and we appreciate your support!!

Block Blitz is an annual community event that brings together homeowners and volunteers to help cleanup, landscape, paint, and repair as many as 40 homes in a single day at no cost to residents. This year’s event will be held in the Washington Square Park neighborhood on the City's north side on Friday, September 11th from 9am - 3pm. Block Blitz is also HHQ’s annual fundraiser, but instead of asking you to buy a ticket to a dinner or gala, we ask you to volunteer your time to this event. Proceeds raised support Block Blitz and Home HeadQuarters’ programs and services.

How Can You Help?

Volunteer your time to this great community event! Bring your friends, family, co-workers or employees and help us clean up, paint, landscape, and renovate! Block Blitz is a great team building experience and we welcome groups! Typical volunteer jobs include clearing brush, raking leaves, painting pretty much anything, planting flowers, mulching and more.

What Should You Bring?

You do not need to bring anything except for yourself! Home HeadQuarters will provide our volunteers with snacks, water, and lunch around 12:30pm. 

What should You Wear?

All volunteers should wear comfortable work shoes or sneakers and clothes that can get dirty! If you are volunteering as a part of a team, we encourage you to wear t-shirts from your organization or group if you have them. Please remember to check the weather forecast and dress accordingly – layers work great!

Where Do You Go?

Please park on the side streets located around Washington Square Park. Our registration and welcome table will be set-up in the park between Park St. and LeMoyne Ave. (For those using navigation systems, please enter 118 Washington Square Syracuse, NY 13208.) Please plan on arriving by 9am on Friday, September 11th. Our staff will give you all the information you need to have a fantastic day giving back to our community. After checking in & a brief welcome, you will be directed to your assigned property.
