Love Your Block
Love Your Block was first implemented in Fall River, Massachusetts in 2013 as part of the city’s high-impact service initiative. To limit replication of key resources requested by neighborhoods, the city created a mobile tool library and an urban tree farm. The mobile tool library delivered tools and other cleanup supplies to neighborhoods when they were needed for revitalization projects; neighborhoods then returned the tools to the city when projects were completed.
The City of Fall River has partnered with neighborhood associations, civic organizations, the Fall River Park Advocates, Greater Fall River Re-Creation and many other partners to beautify the city. Various cleanup efforts take place throughout the year, and the spring citywide cleanup has grown to attract over one thousand committed volunteers.
