Louisville–In an effort to bring the community together and bring forth positive change, Council members Barbara Sexton Smith (D-4) and Brandon Coan (D-8) have kicked off the 100-Days “Give Every Day” campaign.

“Our city has faced some tough challenges so far in 2020 and there is no better time to stress unity than to rally together and find those things big and small that can make a difference in our communities and neighborhoods,” said Councilwoman Sexton Smith. “It’s a simple campaign and with the help of many local organizations working with Metro Government, we can accomplish many things. We need everyone’s help to bring about a change in the next 100 days.”

“It has been a long, hard year – and it will likely continue to be – but a lot of good can still happen over the next 100 days. This is how we get better: all hands-on deck and making an effort, one day at a time,” said Councilman Coan.

The 100-Days Give Every Day” campaign sets large and small goals of tasks based around the number 100. Individuals or groups of volunteers can handle many of the tasks.
