In the wake of the recent shooting incident in the Fort Worth Como area on July 3rd, the West Area Board members of the Fort Worth Chamber extended their support to local businesses affected by the tragedy. The board members reached out to companies in the area to offer assistance and determine if there was anything the chamber could do to help.
Throughout their efforts, board members discovered a compelling story of resilience. One of the women who was shot sought refuge in one of the businesses that Dion Harrison, Chief Diversity Officer at Elevate and FWC West Area Board member, had contacted. The shop owner, who has been operating in that location for over two decades, praised the swift and impressive response of the Fort Worth Police Department. Additionally, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) arrived promptly to provide medical aid to the wounded woman and ensure her safety.
The outreach from the Fort Worth Chamber was highly appreciated by the local business community. This initiative demonstrates the organization's commitment to supporting companies during times of crisis.
