Mayor Jerry Abramson today issued a call for volunteers to help beautify Louisville at the annual Brightside/Republic Bank Community-wide Cleanup on Saturday, October 29, 8 a.m. to noon. The cleanup is part of the ongoing community-wide “Keep It Clean” campaign to reduce litter throughout Louisville.
“The Cleanup is a structured way for families, neighborhood groups, church groups, school groups, Cub Scouts and social clubs to make a difference in their hometown,” Abramson said. “A clean community is not only a good place to live, it’s a good place to locate a business and raise a family.”
Individual volunteers or groups are asked to select any part of the community they wish to clean, then call MetroCall at 311 to have Louisville Metro Solid Waste Management pick up filled trash bags at the end of the day. Bags, gloves, a free T-shirt and morning refreshments will be given out to community volunteers from the following Republic Bank locations:
· 4921 Brownsboro Road
· 2028 West Broadway
· 4655 Outer Loop
· 5250 Dixie Highway
· 3902 Taylorsville Road
· 10100 Brookridge Village Blvd.
“Brightside has been so successful in beautifying our city due our many tremendous partnerships with the business community. We appreciate the support of Republic Bank, who recognizes that we all share a responsibility to make our community a cleaner, greener and more beautiful place to live,” Abramson said.
Republic Bank & Trust Company chairman and CEO Steve Trager said Republic is proud to be a sponsor of the Community-Wide Cleanup. “We look forward to Brightside’s continued efforts in keeping our beautiful city clean,” he said. Republic is Louisville’s largest locally owned bank.
