HURST (CBSDFW.COM) - More than 100 employees from the City of Hurst spent Friday out of the office. But they were still working to improve their city. The 15th annual Employee Giving Day is a chance for these city workers to help homeowners make repairs to houses and spruce up lawns.

City spokeswoman Ashleigh Johnson said that Employee Giving Day is a part of a bigger initiative by the city council, to transform and beautify the city.

Since the program started, volunteers have worked on more than 100 pieces of property. They do everything from painting to yardwork and making simple repairs to houses.

This year, the group of volunteers descended on four houses across the city. Johnson said that the group includes police officers, firefighters, office workers and even an assistant city manager. The workers started at 8:00 a.m. and were still going strong into the afternoon hours.

Residents who need help with their property must first fill out an application with the city. A committee then reviews those applications and selects which homeowners to help based on the level of need.

Area businesses pitched in by donating supplies for the effort.
