Gather your friends and family members to join Mayor Betsy Price in her Week of Compassionate Service to make Fort Worth a better place to live and work.

Last year, the city council signed the International Charter for Compassion, designating Fort Worth as a Compassionate City.

To guide the city toward becoming an even greater and more compassionate city, Mayor Betsy Price is encouraging individuals, civic groups, faith-based groups and others to get involved in the Mayor’s Week of Compassionate Service, Jan. 16-24.

The diverse group of faith leaders who are a part of the Mayor’s Faith-Based Cabinet are encouraging residents to organize service projects throughout the week.

“I am calling on families, business leaders, faith institutions, nonprofits, neighborhoods, schools and individuals from across Tarrant County to create, organize and initiate volunteer projects of your choice throughout that week,” Price said. “Everyone can do something!”

Go online to register your volunteer opportunity.

“I want to see our citizens volunteer and give a day, or even an hour, to demonstrate tangible acts of compassion,” Price said. “Let’s come together in January 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.”

Watch Mayor Price describe her vision for a compassionate Fort Worth:
