Rock The Block – Volunteering Opportunities


Saturday September 13, Noon – 4:00PM

Des Peres Avenue between Delmar Blvd. and Greg Freeman Park at Four Corners (Kingsbury Ave)

We need you to help us ROCK THE BLOCK!

Neighbors from around the community have worked diligently since the beginning of the year to put together a set of unique events that will transform the look of Des Peres Ave – for one day. The community will experience a Des Peres Ave like it’s never been seen before!

And YOU can be a part of this team of neighbors! We have some fun activities that need volunteer support. All we ask is for 1-2 hours of your service. Here are a few:

  • Better Block Decorations Team – Help display decorations for the event. You make us look good!Better Block1
  • Historic Wabash Train Station – Setup, cleanup, hand out helpful information.
  • Dog Park – Setup, cleanup, handing out materials, etc. Great for dog lovers!
  • Library – Help setup, cleanup and library duties. Also seeking book donations!
  • Bike Lane – Help making a bike lane.
  • Children’s Art Project – Help children make little paper houses.
  • Interactive Street Art – Assist in a street arts project.
