The city of Houston has put a plan into place that will help to give the neighborhoods in the Houston area a face lift. The city will be giving money to neighborhoods in order to help them fix up the areas and turn their neighborhoods into a place they love living.
The city has asked volunteers from each neighborhood to come forward and submit their areas into the friendly competition and they will receive backing from the city as well as a corporate sponsor.
The new program is called Love Your Block and each neighborhood that applies will receive a $500 gift card to Home Depot in order to begin to spruce up their street.
The gift card is not meant to cover all costs, but to inspire neighbors to become passionate in helping to rejuvenate their block. Many areas are wanting to plant new shrubbery and create more walkway area.
