Building Strong Communities: Rock the Block 2022

By Alexa Johnson

Building homes, communities, and hope is about much more than raising walls and hammering nails (although it involves a lot of that, too). To truly make a lasting, sustainable impact, we must do more to invest in the communities that we serve and which future Habitat homeowners will call home.

On Friday, Habitat Charlotte Region staff, volunteers, partners, and homeowners-in-process came together for Rock the Block 2022. During this community cleanup event, volunteers went house to house helping current residents of the neighborhood where our Meadows at Plato Price development is being built to complete a variety of projects. Volunteers cleaned gutters, painted, raked leaves, mowed lawns, hauled away trash and unwanted items to be donated to our ReStores, and more.

This was an amazing opportunity to lend a helping hand and connect with our West Charlotte neighbors around the Meadows community. Thank you to every staff member, volunteer, HIP, and partner organization who was involved in this incredible event. And special thanks to Moore’s Sanctuary AME Zion Church for providing parking for our volunteers and to the City of Charlotte Solid Waste Dept. for providing us with a dumpster for the event!
