To guide the city toward becoming an even 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 Mayor’s Faith-Based Cabinet shared some reasons why groups across Fort Worth should get involved:

  • This can be a focused week of getting people involved in your organization.
  • Your volunteer opportunity can be part of a much larger citywide initiative, and your organization will be part of the bigger picture of compassion in our city.
  • Your efforts and volunteerism will be recognized by Compassionate Fort Worth and Mayor Price.
  • Media attention will be focused on the Mayor’s Week of Compassionate Service.
  • You will help make Fort Worth a more compassionate city.
  • Your efforts will inspire more sustained action in our community and will become an example for other cities across the nation.
