Adopt-A-Block program looks for more volunteers to clean up Rockford neighborhood

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Adopt-A-Block Rockford is looking for volunteers of all ages to transform a Rockford neighborhood and help host a block party.

Adopt-A-Block Rockford's Director, Danial Petrie, says it's more than just about cleaning the streets and sidewalks. He says its about building relationships. 

"Studies show that similar programs have made these neighborhoods safer," Petrie said.

Volunteers will be mowing yards, trimming, pulling and bagging weeds and cleaning up trash. After cleanup is done, a block party will be held for residents in that area.

Volunteer check-in is at 8 a.m. at the District Two Police Station and Saturday, April 21st.
