1 day. 32 projects.

On Saturday, September 26th, 2015, volunteers with Habitat for Humanity, John Deere, and Rebuilding Together Quad Cities worked on more than 30 projects in the Floreciente Neighborhood in Moline. Projects included home repairs, siding, roofing, yard cleanups, and a general neighborhood cleanup, said a press release.

The "Rock the Block" event kicked off Habitat for Humanity's Neighborhood Revitalization Program, a new nationwide initiative to serve even more families in more ways.

"Over time, we work with the residents and other stakeholders within the neighborhood boundary to develop a plan to keep moving forward, keeping it strong, and keeping it sustainable," said Mary Chappell, Neighborhood Planning Director.

The initiative is paid for by the John Deere Foundation and the Hubbell-Waterman Foundation.

Habitat has built six houses in the Floreciente Neighborhood and just broke ground on its 7th.
