Saturday July 3: Loving and Empowering Our Neighbors

Saturday July 3: We will do what we normally do on Martin Luther King Day in the Greenway neighborhood on this special event: Loving and Empowering Our Neighbors. We will work on several maintenance projects in the neighborhood to help those without resources to do the jobs themselves. We will gather at the 6:8 House (1912 Portland Avenue, Fort Worth, TX 76102) between 7:30 am and 8:00 am to get organized, and then we will divide up into small groups to work on the projects. At the end of the morning (11:30 or 12 pm) we will have lunch at the 6:8 house for everyone. To save some time, you could fill out our liability waivers in advance:
Youth waiver
Adult waiver
