FWHR In the Community
Members of Fort Worth HR joined with other Fort Worth Volunteers on Saturday, October 19th volunteering for Quality Control (QC) at Tarrant Area Food Bank's distribution center, where donated food products were sorted, inspected and repacked for distribution to a network of partner organizations in a 13-county area. As a group, we helped sort, inspect and pack a total of 11,169 LBS making approximately 9,308 MEALS for the families we serve. “Volunteers in Quality Control make a BIG impact by helping to ensure that our neighbors in need receive safe, quality food”, Tarrant Area Food Bank.Once again, we thank you for choosing to participate in the fight against hunger!

“Thank you Bar-B-Que Luncheon”
The Greater Fort Worth Civic Leaders & The Greater Fort Worth Area Community Charities hosted a “Thank you Bar-B-Que Luncheon” for the military personnel and civilian employees, who work at the Naval Air Station, Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth on Friday, May 24th. Community leaders from around the Metroplex were invited to come out to the base to thank the men and women serving our Nation. This is the largest event of its kind in the Metroplex. Don Graves 93 year-old Iwo Jima survivor shared stories of his experience. Mayor Kay Granger spoke about how they got the base reopened and gave out awards to several veterans. FWHR participated as a Bronze sponsor and our own FWHR member Sabrina Williams, a veteran herself, attended on behalf of our membership.
