Keep Indianapolis Beautiful is celebrating a milestone after the adoption of the 500th block in the Adopt-a-Block program. Created in 2002, Adopt-a-Block is one of KIB’s longest running programs with more than 500 volunteers bringing beautification and neighborhood revitalization projects to participating blocks in various Indianapolis communities. From litter clean-up, and street sweeping to flower planting and environmental stewardship, the program has connected volunteers young and old with the same common goal – keeping their community clean.
The program is always open for participation. First, a neighborhood needs a Block Coordinator to organize cleanups and connect neighbors. Then, KIB provides each coordinator a cleanup kit with everything from tools such as garbage bags and gloves, to plant material for flowers and trees. Find out more here.
