Adopt-A-Block hosts Earth Day event

Children's activities, and a free pizza lunch will be provided

Celebrate Earth Day by tidying up Mission with Adopt-A-Block.

The local non-profit organization is doing a community clean up from its offices on Mershon Street, branching outward towards the downtown area between 11 and 3 p.m.

Adopt-A-Block is in need of equipment for the event; specifically leaf and garden rakes, pruners of all sizes, flat shovels and wheelbarrows. Anyone who plans to volunteer is asked to bring something from that list. If you can loan some of the items, that would also be welcomed.

Tim Hortons coffee and a pizza lunch will be provided, and all ages are welcome. There will children’s activities, including barrel painting, face painting, mural painting and a create your own planter station.
