Fort Worth to participate in Thank You Thursdays

Posted April 23, 2020

Fort Worth Fire personnel joined others to stop by local hospitals last week to thank medical personnel for their work.

In collaboration with the City of Dallas and following the success of last week’s #DFWOvation, Fort Worth will participate in a weekly display of appreciation for frontline workers. Thank You Thursdays begin this week across North Texas at 7 p.m.

Mayor Betsy Price and Mayor Eric Johnson of Dallas encourage residents in both cities to continue their ovations each Thursday evening as a way to show continued support and gratitude for the frontline workers in the battle against COVID-19.

Fort Worth will illuminate downtown buildings in blue lights. Residents throughout the Metroplex are asked to step outside their homes at 7 p.m. and give ovations to those working to protect others. Neighborhoods are encouraged to join to participate in this effort. Of course, everyone should wear a face mask and practice social distancing while participating.

“Last week’s outpouring of support for our frontline workers was incredibly successful and inspiring,” Price said. “These weekly ovations are a great way for our community to rally together, safely, and show our appreciation for those working tirelessly to battle COVID-19 and keep our community healthy and safe.”

The hashtag #ThankYouThursday will be used to follow all of the displays of gratitude shown on social media. Share acts of gratitude on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
