Adopt-a-Block needs your help

Coronavirus is presenting new challenges to keeping Hayward safe, clean and green—but there’s a way to make a difference where you live.

Community members are invited and encouraged to join volunteers from across the City by “adopting” an area and committing to help keep it litter free from a period of two years.

Adopt-a-Block volunteers play an important role in improving neighborhood appearance and attractiveness and all that goes along with it.  By picking up litter and debris, they also help protect waterways and natural habitats.

Adopt-a-Block is a program of the Keep Hayward Clean and Green Task Force and the Hayward Maintenance Services Department, which provides everything volunteers need to get started, including trash bags, gloves and grabbers.

To learn more or join, go online here to the Adopt-a-Block program webpage on the City of Hayward website, email or call (510) 881-7745.
