Cowtown Brush Up improves property values, creates neighborhood pride

Homes will be painted and repaired by hundreds of volunteers during Cowtown Brush Up, a project of Trinity Habitat for Humanity and the City of Fort Worth.

Teams of volunteers from local corporations, nonprofit organizations, government agencies and faith-based organizations are encouraged to participate by painting and repairing homes on April 10.

Volunteers must be at least 12 years old. Ladders, water, lunch and snacks are the team’s responsibility, but all other supplies will be provided. Volunteers must agree to follow COVID-19 safety protocols.

Keeping homes in good repair does more than support neighborhood property values — well-maintained homes foster community pride and contribute to the city’s overall economic development. Many of the homes that receive facelifts are in Fort Worth’s central city neighborhoods and are owned by families who need a helping hand, such as the elderly or disabled.

Registration is open to sponsors and fundraising teams at this time. If any team spots are still available, they will be opened to non-sponsor teams on March 2.
