Louisville – As part of National Day of Service, in honor of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, several members of the Louisville Metro Council will participate in a cleanup along Taylor Boulevard on Monday, January 18th.
The community is invited to come and join.
“This day honors a man who asked for us to make the world a better place for all,” says President David James (D-6). “This is one of many ways we can give back to our community. I encourage everyone to take the time on Monday and give back with an expression of volunteer service.”
“This is a marvelous opportunity for us to honor Martin Luther King with a Day of Giving.” says Councilman Kevin Triplett (D-15), who represents the area. “Now more than ever as we strive to bring our community together, I’m thrilled and encourage everyone come out and help us if they can.”
The cleanup will begin at the South Louisville Community Center, 2911 Taylor Boulevard starting at 9:30 a.m. Council members and any volunteers will walk south to Longfield Avenue cleaning up one side of the street then head north back to the Community Center cleaning the other side.
Brightside is providing the needed bags and gloves for the cleanup. Social distancing guidelines will be followed.
