As of May 14, over 100 blocks have been adopted in Sunnyside through Adopt One Block with fewer than 60 blocks still seeking adoption.
To make yourself known to the SNA as a block ambassador or if you ever need help with disposing of excess trash, dealing with larger dumping, needles or biohazards while cleaning your adopted block, please contact Vincent Dawans, SNA Cleanup Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, if you are one the existing block ambassadors, or decided to adopt a block after reading this article, our Cleanup Coordinator would love to hear from you (if he hasn’t yet)! This is important because for privacy reasons Adopt One Block is not authorized to share this information directly with us. Getting this information from you and maintaining a list of block ambassadors within the SNA will allow us to improve collaboration and coordination, as well as offer local support. So far about 30 block ambassadors have made themselves known but we would like to hear from more. On the map, the blocks of known ambassadors are identified with a thin white line around their adopted block (grey areas). Your information will not be shared publicly, but knowing about you will also allow our Cleanup Coordinator to privately connect ambassadors of neighboring blocks if they both choose so.
