HHQ'S ANNUAL BLOCK BLITZ
The Block Blitz is an annual community event that brings together homeowners and volunteers to help repair, landscape, and paint up to 50 homes in a single day, rain or shine, in a city of Syracuse neighborhood at no cost to residents. Block Blitz aims to resolve exterior safety issues; improve neighborhood aesthetics; encourage homeowner investment; and strengthen neighborhood networks. Last year, Home HeadQuarters, along with 320 volunteers from area businesses, schools, churches, local government and more, painted fences, rebuilt porches, planted trees, sealed driveways, fixed steps, planted flowers, removed brush and much more, all in the name of supporting our community and our affordable housing and lending efforts.
HOW CAN I HELP IN 2019?
Whether you are a local business, skilled contractor, community organization or 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 goal of improving 50 homes in just one day. The Annual Block Blitz is also a fundraiser to support Home HeadQuarters' programs and services. For Sponsorship Levels and more information, please contact Mary Jo or Karen at (315) 474-1939 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 300 volunteers provide invaluable resources that allow us to provide quality home improvements and keep our volunteers happy.
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! To sponsor a group of volunteers or to sign up, please contact Mary Jo or Karen at (315) 474-1939 or email@example.com.

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!
