Volunteer painters will work on a mural being developed along Mansfield Avenue. These art pieces, like the one shown here in the Sunset Heights neighborhood, help reduce graffiti.
Volunteer painters are needed to help create a mural honoring the history of the Fort Worth Association of Federated Women’s Clubs. The mural near 1300 Mansfield Avenue will celebrate the organization’s past presidents, milestones and accomplishments.
Volunteers don’t have to be artists — they just need to be able to paint within the lines. Painting is scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 26. Painting supplies, snacks and drinking water will be provided to volunteers. Sign up online.
Founded in 1917, the Fort Worth Association of Federated Women’s Clubs is an organization that prides itself on giving back to the African-American community through charitable giving, senior citizen services, prom dress giveaways and scholarships. For more than 100 years, members have been living by their motto, “Lifting as we climb,” by assisting young African-American women with college and career preparation, networking skills, social and business etiquette and public speaking skills through its cotillion program.
