4th annual 'Give a Day' week brings out thousands of volunteers

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - It's a week of service to help beautify the streets of Louisville.

Hundreds of projects are already planned for the fourth annual "Give a Day" week of community service.

It all started Saturday with thousands of volunteers picking up litter and debris.

They joined Brightside in hundreds of neighborhoods, schools and parks.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer says his goal is to break Louisville's existing world record for caring, with at leat 165,000 volunteers.

"Well we set a new world record for compassion every year," Mayor Fischer said. "I just came from another event where there were 200 people there, so it's just getting bigger and bigger because I think people like to tune in to their inner goodness that they have and this is just one way to show it."

He says volunteers are still needed for more than 100 different projects.

You can view those projects and sign up online here.
