Armed with shovels, paint brushes and giving hearts, more than 100 volunteers with Atmos Energy, 6 Stones and Fort Worth’s Neighborhood Services Department cleaned up eight homes this week.

The Team Up to Clean Up event identified eight families in desperate need of help around the home. Some of the projects included repairing roofs, rebuilding fences, trimming trees and other beautification efforts.

Two of the families were in Fort Worth’s Stop Six neighborhood, on Ramey Avenue and Hampshire Boulevard. Other families that received assistance were in Haltom City, Richland Hills, Hurst, Bedford and Euless.

Fort Worth is in the midst of a $2.56 million investment in the Cavile Place/Stop Six community to improve public safety, promote economic revitalization and enhance community engagement.
