Here are some of the 1300 volunteers who helped restore homes in Tarrant County on Saturday, March 24, 2012.

Homeowners in the mid-cities are enjoying outside upgrades thanks to volunteers who finished the work they couldn't.

The 6 Stones Mission Network organizes the program twice a year.

This year saw the organization’s biggest turnout when 1,300 volunteers showed up Saturday to help homeowners they don’t know with landscaping, roof repair, painting and more.

The effort is special for Bruce Buchanan, who is recovering from jaw cancer.

The couple had saved the money necessary to do the repairs themselves when Buchanan's cancer diagnosis came.

“We had the money up to do it," said Buchanan. "This came along last year and it wiped out everything we had put back."

Volunteers helped 23 other homeowners across Hurst, Euless and Bedford.

6 Stones organizes Community Powered Revitalization (CPR) blitzes twice a year, once in the spring and in the fall.

Homeowners must apply and fit certain requirements to be chosen.
