2 days, 400+ volunteers, 23 home repairs and 3 community projects. This is just a glimpse into the upcoming hopes and expectations for our 2019 Rock the Block event. Rock the Block, which is our biggest two day blitz-build event, will be taking place on September 6th & 7th and needs lots of helping hands!
About Rock the Block
Rock the Block originally came as a two day blitz-build last year in October. With this event, we were lucky enough to have 250 volunteers and over 50 partners in South Oak Park that helped to repair 17 homes. Some of these repair services included external paint, yard clean up, landscaping, and fencing, all of which were working to make homeowners dreams come true. Not only did it help the proprietors but this event also aided to bring numerous people, groups, and organizations together to build memories as well as repair homes. This event left a lasting impression on us, showing us how much we all can get done when we all put a helping hand forward even in such a short time frame.
As the event gets closer, we are shooting for the stars and aiming even higher than before! At our 2019 Rock the Block our goal to repair 23 homes in the Fruitridge Community thanks to support from our presenting sponsor Wells Fargo with additional support from County District 1 Phil Serna, CapCon, DPR Construction, and dozens of community sponsors.
