A family fun Habitat for Humanity Rock the Block held Saturday, July 16 mobilized hundreds of volunteers to repair homes in the North Little Rock neighborhood Baring Cross. A water carnival was held for attending kids, at which North Little Rock Police Officer Tommy Norman sat in a dunk tank. Kids took turns dunking the beloved police officer, and then took turns dunking each other. A waterslide also helped cool off the kids who had been working hard in the July heat to help their neighbors. The Salvation Army, Baring Cross Neighborhood Association, Pleasant Valley Church of Christ, also joined hundreds of volunteers who gathered to build strength, stability, and self-reliance in the North Little Rock neighborhood.
