Our Rock the Block events help revitalize neighborhoods with beautification projects. Under the guidance of our construction crew, volunteers will help neighborhood residents with mowing, trimming bushes, cleaning one-story gutters, and hauling away yard waste and other debris. Join us as we put God’s love into action!
What is Rock the Block?
A one-day event designed to impact a specific neighborhood in Springfield as part of our Neighborhood Revitalization program efforts. Projects for the day will include yard clean-ups (raking, mowing, trimming of bushes and trees), debris removal, exterior painting and minor outdoor home repairs.
This event encourages neighbors, homeowners, and community partners to be outside together, working in the yard, having fun, and making a difference in their neighborhoods.
