Thank YOU 2018 Block Blitz Volunteers, Sponsors, Supporters, Homeowners, Contractors, Restaurants, City of Syracuse Departments, Syracuse Police, HHQ Board of Directors and EVERYONE!

What a great and amazing day! It didn’t rain! The busy road got closed! Volunteers came out in the hundreds and helped cleanup, landscape, paint, and repair almost 50 homes in the Elmwood Park neighborhood of Syracuse. A whole mural got painted! Things got done.

Over the last eleven years, Block Blitz events have improved nearly 300 properties in city of Syracuse neighborhoods. See you next year!
