Louisville – In the spirit of giving back to the community, Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh has scheduled two events to coincide with Mayor Greg Fischer’s “Week of Service” for residents of District 9 who might want to volunteer and help others.

“There are times when a community shows its caring and character by extending a helping hand which make neighborhoods strong as a result of building community,” says Ward-Pugh. “While I am sure there are many who plan to participate in the Mayor’s Week of Service, we have a few opportunities for them to lend a helping hand.”

Volunteer s are invited to join us at the following events during the week of April 14th through the 21st.

  • On Saturday, April 14th, the 14th Annual Spring Community Clean-up. The pocket park at the intersection of Brownsboro Road and Story Avenue in the Butchertown Neighborhood will be the scene of a cleanup and trimming event by volunteers. It will begin at 8:30 a.m. and last until 12:00pm. T-shirts, gloves, bags, coffee and breakfast will be provided.
  • Then on Saturday, April 21st volunteers will assist the League of Women Voters by offering help around their office at 115 S Ewing from 9:00 a.m. until 12:30 pm. Volunteers will be engaged in general repairs, painting, cleaning, organizing, trimming bushes, etc.

“I hope everyone will join with us to demonstrate our compassion as a city,” says Ward-Pugh. “We hope you can join us but if not, there are many other worthwhile opportunities for you to events that could use your time, effort and generosity.”

For more information about these events, contact Councilwoman Ward-Pugh’s office at 574-1109 or email kyle.ethridge@louisvilleky.gov .
