Richland Hills to Participate in Community Powered Revitalization (CPR) Program
The City of Richland Hills will be joining with Hurst, Bedford, Watauga, and Euless to participate in the 6 Stones’ Community Powered Revitalization (CPR) program on Friday, October 16th and Saturday, October 17th. The CPR program is a joint effort between 6 Stones and the five cities, various businesses, nonprofit organizations and churches to help struggling homeowners make necessary home repairs.
This will be the second CPR event Richland Hills will participate in this year. During the first event volunteers worked on seven homes in the city that needed different levels of repair and painting. Lessons were learned and weather played a factor in work completed but the event was successful from both the perspective of the homeowners and the volunteers who donated their time.
Several homeowners have submitted applications requesting their homes be considered for the CPR event in October. The city is in need of more applications from homeowners or families with limited resources to maintain their yards and homes due to health issues or fixed incomes. If you would like to fill out an application or know someone in your neighborhood who would benefit from the event applications are available in City Hall and on the city’s website at www.richlandhills.com.
Volunteers, 12 years or older, are needed to help paint, perform minor home repairs, cleaning up yards and planting bushes and flowers. Volunteers are also needed on the morning of the event in helping deliver lunches, registration at the event, handing out t-shirts and breakfast.
Volunteers can work either Friday or Saturday or both days if they would like. This is a great event to help our neighbors who might not have the resources to help themselves at this time. The intent is to improve the neighborhood appearance while helping a neighbor.
