Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” This teaching by Jesus defines our core. It is our backbone and why we exist. Likewise, an important part of loving God and our neighbors is compassion. Compassion moves us to respond to the needs of our community. Compassion drives our volunteers to spend their evenings standing outside to greet members of our community. Compassion drives our partners to help underwrite our work. Compassion stirs our hearts to move our hands.
Mayor’s Week of Service
We are grateful to live in a city that emphasizes compassion. In November 2015, Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price challenged every community in our city to pick a day between January 16 to 24 to serve and volunteer in ways that result in tangible acts of compassion. For the Mayor’s Week of Compassionate Service, we have two opportunities for you to join us in service:
- We need volunteers on 1/19 and 1/21 to serve hot drinks to our patients as they wait. If you have been thinking about volunteering with us, here is your opportunity to come and get to know some of the 76110 community.
- We will be holding our 1st Annual Coats For 76110 coat drive beginning 1/19. We will need volunteers to help collect and sort coats on 1/19 and 1/21.
