Thank you, Fort Worth!
“Approximately 1593 volunteers served our community during the 2017 Mayor’s Week of Compassionate Service in 105 different activities motivated by the Golden Rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
“These projects were created by individual families, businesses both small and large, non-profits, faith institutions, neighborhoods and schools across Tarrant County, and took place between January 21-29 of this year.”
Here was our call to action from Fort Worth Mayor, Betsy Price:
Let’s make Fort Worth the most compassionate large city in America! There is already so much compassion in our city, and most of it goes unrecognized. But, there is way to demonstrate compassion and inspire others to do the same, and it is by participating in the second annual, “Mayor’s Week of Compassionate Service, January 21-29, 2017.
I believe that our actions motivated by the Golden Rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, will help us become an even greater and more compassionate city.
Several members of my Faith Leaders Cabinet steward our vision of “Building Bridges for a More Compassionate Fort Worth”, built on the three values of Volunteerism, Unity and Abundance.
For the second year in a row, during the Mayor’s Week of Compassionate Service, I am calling on families, business leaders, faith institutions, non-profits, neighborhoods, schools and individuals from across Tarrant County to create, organize and initiate volunteer projects of your choice.
Everyone can do something!
I want to see our citizens volunteer and give a day, or even an hour to demonstrate tangible acts of compassion from January 21-29, 2017. Let’s come together to serve and volunteer, helping those among us, inspiring others to action and serving as an example of compassion to other cities across our nation!
– Mayor Betsy Price, Fort Worth
