More than 1,000 volunteers are expected to participate in completing desperately needed home repairs on 27 homes for residents of Hurst, Euless and Bedford as part of the Community Powered Revitalization (CPR) Spring Blitz on April 8-9. 6 Stones Mission Network has organized 2-day home revitalization blitzes up to twice a year for the past several years. The team expects to complete work on the 100th home during the blitz.
Hundreds of volunteers from the cities of Hurst, Euless and Bedford, HEB ISD (including members of the cabinet, faculty and students), HEB Chamber of Commerce, local businesses, churches and organizations across the community will meet at 8 a.m. on April 8-9 at 6 Stones, 209 N Industrial in Bedford. Representatives from the community will lead a festive rally before teams disperse to their assigned work locations, which include 10 homes in Hurst, nine homes in Euless and eight homes in Bedford.
“Where else in the United States do you see three cities working so closely together with residents, city leaders, business owners, churches and organizations to help one another?” asked Scott Sheppard, Executive Director, 6 Stones Mission Network. “It really is unmatched and it is a phenomenal effort.”
The Home Depot Foundation provided a $15,000 grant for the CPR project, joining numerous other donors, including The Thompson Group at Classic Chevrolet, Chick-fil-A, Starbucks, iT’Z Pizza Euless, Moritz Kia, TruGreen Landcare and Allied Waste/Republic Services.
