HHQ'S ANNUAL BLOCK BLITZ
BLOCK BLITZ 2017 | THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 | 9AM-3PM | SOUTH SIDE
Block Blitz is an annual community revitalization event organized by Home HeadQuarters that brings together homeowners, community partners, skilled laborers, and volunteers who donate their time and talents to help cleanup, landscape, paint, and repair as many homes as possible in a single day in a high-need neighborhood!
Over the last five years, Block Blitz events have improved nearly 240 properties in low-income neighborhoods. This year’s event will be held in the South Side neighborhood of Syracuse. Please check back for more details!
HOW CAN I HELP?
Whether you are a local business, skilled contractor, community organization or a community member, we want you to join us!
Corporate sponsorship is critical so that we can purchase the materials and supplies necessary to meet our new goal of improving 50 homes in just one day. Our Tool Box & Community Builder sponsors will be recognized on all marketing materials.
In-kind contributions of skilled labor and materials such as paint, driveway sealer, mulch and plants as well as food & beverages for our more than 200 volunteers provide invaluable resources that allow us to provide quality home improvements.
Come help us paint, landscape, and renovate and bring your co-workers or employees! Block Blitz is a great team building experience and we welcome groups!
