A message from Adotp-a-Block

Good afternoon friends,
Under the leadership of the Greater Millville Ministerial Association, the Adopt a Block Program truly made a difference in our neighborhoods last year. We collected several tons of trash and had an obvious presence in the community every third Saturday morning. After taking a short break, we’ll be back on the job starting Saturday, February 18th and you’re invited to join us. We’ll meet at 10 AM at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 3rd and Mulberry Streets to pick up our gear and then go out to spruce up our City. After an hour or so, we’ll return to St. Paul’s for refreshments and to share our experiences.
We do this not only to pick up trash but to engage our neighbors and invite them to participate. While we’re concentrated in Center City, any block in any neighborhood can be adopted, by any group, including within our Arts District. An individual can join with any group they want.
We also do this because it’s fun. You get a cool t-shirt and you get to hang out with cool people. And on a serious note, we know that we have significant challenges in our City. This is one of many approaches that we know works.
So we hope that you’ll join us on the 18th. In the meantime, please print and post our flyer in your business, school or church. If the weather is bad, we’ll renew our program on March 17th. If you have any questions, please call me or Pastor Elizabeth Nees at 856-825-3008.
Thanks, Ed
