Adopt-A-Block Volunteer Leader

Published by admin on

Adopt-A-Block Overview:  This is Raleigh Dream Center’s primary way of changing the atmosphere and building transformational relationships by being present in local neighborhoods. The strength of Adopt-A-Block is its ability to build strong, lasting relationships within the community that will allow us to speak into someone’s potential and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Every 2nd & 4th Saturday of the month from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, we knock on doors, provide groceries for households, pick up trash, play with children, and have intentional Gospel conversations. Our Adopt-A-Block program provides over 10,000 pounds of groceries each month at no cost to under-resourced communities.
