Recently, I talked about how we could all honor the memory of Owsley Brown by giving back to our community in whatever way we can. And now, Mayor Greg Fischer has come up with a way we can do just that -- by volunteering during the city's first "Give a Day" week of service projects.
During this week – which runs from next Monday through October 24 – the Mayor's office is making it easy for everyone to donate their services to the area's non-profit agencies, churches and other organizations simply by visiting the website www.mygiveaday.com and choosing where they'd like to lend a hand. And if you represent a group that has a project or projects in need of volunteers, you're also invited to visit the same website to get listed.
It's the city's way of playing matchmaker between the community's numerous charitable organizations and the many potential volunteers who have so much to give. And no matter how you help, you'll be rewarded for your efforts with the knowledge that you've helped make Louisville a better place.
Of course, volunteers aren't just needed for one week a year. But if this special campaign succeeds in raising awareness and getting new people excited about how they can contribute, it can have a permanent effect throughout the year.
So visit mygiveaday.com, and see the many ways you can make a difference. It's an effort worth making.
