Mayor Fischer promotes "Give A Day" volunteer week

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- We can do better.

That's the message from Mayor Greg Fischer as he prepares for Louisville's second annual Give A Day volunteer week.

"I'm issuing a call to action to the entire community to step up and get in the game and help us break our own world record for public service during this year's Give A Day week of service April 13-21," Fischer said on Tuesday.

Last year, 90,000 volunteers came out to perform "acts of compassion" as the Mayor called them -- and those acts led to Louisville being named "America's Most Livable City" by the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

But this year, Mayor Fischer wants to see 100,000 volunteers!

Organizations across the city have already announced their plans for the volunteer week, from planting trees to preparing food baskets.
