KAUKAUNA – Rock the Block volunteers have tackled more than 30 projects this week in the Fassbender Park neighborhood and 1000 Island’s Nature Preserve heading into their final day Saturday. (Swipe down for more photos)

There still is time to sign up to volunteer to help out Saturday, May 6, 2017, according to Vaya Kiel, Communications Specialist at Fox Cities Habitat for Humanity.

Volunteers can contact Lou Hull with Volunteer Services at LouH@FoxCitiesHabitat.org.

Volunteers have spent the week working on four residential projects and one community project as part of Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity’s Rock the Block..

Kaukauna’s Rock the Block will run through Saturday, May 6, 2017, and organizers are looking for more volunteers, especially Saturday.

Kiel said volunteers will tackle 29 projects (19 residential and 10 community), with police/fire/municipality teams coming out to build, deliver snacks and support the efforts.

KHS band and choirs will perform Saturday with art students doing picnic table projects throughout the week.

Kaukauna businesses and community groups are providing lunches and snacks.

Beginning at noon Saturday, organizers will have van tours of the neighborhood with before and after photos. The public is invited to join in on a tour for free.

Rock the Block events showcase Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization program, which brings people together to improve the quality of life in targeted neighborhoods, according to a news release.

Beyond the Rock the Block event, residents in targeted neighborhoods will also be given access to Habitat’s home repair program providing critical home repairs, weatherization and larger-scale home preservation work.
