On Saturday, April 22 we kicked off our Adopt A Block program for 2012. Our volunteers picked up right where we left off from last year. We were also joined by employees from Ontario Public Services as part of the OPS Spirit Volunteer Week which ran from April 15-22. After the work was done, volunteers enjoyed a BBQ in the backyard of one of the residents we reach out to every Saturday. Thanks to everyone who came out to the Adopt A Block kickoff. We’re looking forward to another great year.
Every Saturday Adopt A Block volunteers go out into the community here in Jane-Finch and ask residents if there’s anything they can do to help them out. Volunteers help throw out old furniture, rake leaves, mow lawns, pick up trash in the community, and anything else we can do to lend a hand. The goal of the program is to serve our community in any way we can. Our volunteers go out every Saturday from 11am-2pm. If you would like to join our team and help out with this program just show up at Ephraim’s Place at 11am on Saturdays.
