20 Homes to be Improved During Fix It Blitz in NRH
Volunteers in North Richland Hills will make improvements to 20 homes during the annual Neighborhood Initiative Fix It Blitz. Most of the projects will be completed on Make A Difference Day, Saturday, October 24, which is the largest national day of community service.
Fix It Blitz volunteers will make a difference by helping the elderly, disabled, single parents and veterans who are struggling to complete much needed home repairs and yard work. Projects include painting, repairing fences, landscaping, tree trimming, removing brush and debris, cleaning gutters and more.
During the past 11 years, Neighborhood Initiative volunteers have completed 650 projects to help homeowners who are not physically able to take care of their property and cannot afford to hire someone to help. The program has allowed residents to continue living safely and comfortably in their own homes and has also helped to make their neighborhoods a better place by promoting basic property maintenance and higher community standards.
The Neighborhood Initiative Program is coordinated by city staff, but accomplished through community volunteers, churches and businesses willing to give their time and resources. The program exemplifies what caring truly means and is a great example of what can be achieved when local government, residents and businesses work together.
Groups participating in the 2015 Fix It Blitz include North Richland Hills Baptist Church, North Park Baptist Church, Legacy Church of Christ, students from Richland High School, the North Richland Hills Police Department, Fire Department, city employees and numerous North Richland Hills families and residents.
