2023's BlockWork Project is looking for volunteers!

The Salisbury Community Appearance Commission and Salisbury Housing Advocacy Commission are looking for volunteers for the 2023 BlockWork event!

BlockWork is a grass-roots program started in 2010 by the Community Appearance Commission’s Neighborhood Leaders Alliance (NLA). The event strives to bring residents and community volunteers together to build cleaner and safer neighborhoods, one block at a time. Projects encompass the exterior of the homes and include carpentry, painting, landscaping, and general clean-up in a one-block area. Long term maintenance responsibility is assumed by block property owners, residents, and neighborhood participants.

This year's BlockWork will be on Saturday, October 28, 2023 at the 200 & 300 blocks of Lloyd Street in the West End Neighborhood. Volunteers can sign up for as many two-hour time slots as meets their personal schedule, and will receive a t-shirt, gloves, meals, snacks and drinks.

Twelve successful BlockWork events have been held since its founding, including the initial event on S. Shaver St., which earned a National Make a Difference Day award and a $10,000 prize.

We welcome all skills and abilities! To be a volunteer, fill out the online application, or request a printed copy from
