Community Development Week celebrates volunteerism

National Community Development Week is April 2-6. The Neighborhood Services Department is planning a kickoff event from 4-7 p.m. April 2 at Worth Heights Community Center, 3551 New York Ave.

The local theme is “Building Communities through Volunteerism.” Several dignitaries will provide remarks, including U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey, State Rep. Nicole Collier and District 9 Councilmember Ann Zadeh.

National Community Development Week was created to inform congressional members about the importance of Community Development Block Grants. Local agencies that receive CDBG funding will have information booths at the event, including Ladder Alliance, Goodwill, Meals on Wheels, 60 & Better, AB Christian, United Community Centers and Tarrant County Housing Coalition.

Other events taking place during the celebration week include agency open houses, a community service day and Cowtown Brush-Up.
