A Typical Work Day
Individuals and groups such as churches, companies, families, organizations, and schools work together on exterior home and neighborhood improvement projects. When a group signs up to volunteer, they can choose the adopt a block project or the alley clean-up/graffiti removal project. When groups do the adopt a block project, they will survey their block a couple weeks ahead of time to let the residents know about the opportunity to have volunteers assist with projects at their homes and to gather more information about what projects they have in mind. Projects typically include landscaping, painting, trimming bushes, yard work, or other exterior projects that volunteers can do. When groups do the alley clean-up/graffiti removal project, they will focus on a community clean-up project that includes picking up trash and debris from the alleys, as well as painting over graffiti.
