Help Brush Up Our Cowtown!

By September 6, 2019

We have 20 spots reserved for the 2019 Cowtown Brush Up volunteer painting day October 19. If you are part of a group in our church who would like to serve together, we’re prepared to create a challenge with a lovely prize for the group with the highest percentage of participation!

What is Cowtown Brush Up?

Because the City of Fort Worth considers diversity and vitality of neighborhoods among its most valuable assets, this volunteer-driven project joins hands and hearts across our community each October and April to paint 50 homes in need of exterior paint on a first-come, first-served basis.

Selected homes, usually on the east, west, and south parts of Fort Worth, are deemed eligible via inspection by Cowtown Brushup Program Technicians. For the first 50 homes that meet program requirements, Cowtown Brush Up Volunteers arrive at their designated site to:

  • Prepare the house to be painted
  • Do minor repairs to rotten trim and siding
  • Paint the exterior of the house

Who can sign up?

Families, singles, youth (12 and up), and adults — are invited and welcome to serve with our Texas & Beyond Outreach Ministries and others across our community on Saturday, October 19, to help paint 50 homes in a single day!

Last Spring, we had 10 volunteers, rain delays and other complications; we know there are many more in our church family who would like to participate in this fun, fulfilling opportunity to serve our local community together. (Cool T-Shirt provided!)

No special skills required — there will be a job for everyone to become part of this amazing opportunity to come together and bless others this Fall!

What do we bring?

Just wear your old paint clothes, hat, and favorite gloves (we will have extras as well).

All painting supplies will be provided, along with sunscreen, insect repellant, Gatorade, water, and a few snacks. (Feel free to bring any snacks you’d like to share with the group!)

To learn more about Cowtown Brush Up, call 817-392-7548. To sign up for this year’s First Church Brush Up team, contact John Howard (jhoward@myfumc.org) and be sure to provide your t-shirt size by September 19.
