The organization is encouraging the community members to sign up for the event. ARMS will provide pickers and bags for those coming to the event and any one who is already a member of the program is being asked to bring their existing adopt-a-block equipment and garbage bags.

The idea behind the adopt-a-block program is to encourage community engagement, promote proper waste disposal, building neighbourhood relationships and ensuring a cleaner, healthier city.

Community members will need to send an RSVP to adoptablock@alouetteriver.org to save their spot at the event.
