Councilman David Yates is encouraging residents of District 25 to come out and roll up their sleeves to help in the Brightside Community Clean Up throughout the Southend this Saturday, April 14th.
“The people of Southwest Louisville have always had great pride in their community and that is why we could use some good volunteers on Saturday,” says Yates. “These kinds of cleanups bring many diverse people together for a common purpose and help foster strong neighborly bonds.”
Councilman Yates encourages those without a specific clean up to come to Doss High School beginning at 9:00am to start cleaning up St. Andrews Church Road. All cleanup teams will receive bags and gloves at no cost, and the first 5,000 volunteers to register will also receive a free t-shirt. The cleanup is set to last until 12:00pm.
While Councilman Yates is encouraging residents to join this cleanup, he encourages neighborhoods throughout the district to join in the Brightside effort.
“If you cannot join us on St. Andrews Church Road, then I encourage homeowners, families, friends and others to get out and make an impact on your street or neighborhoods,” says Yates. “Anytime we can make the district a nice clean place, then it benefits everyone.”
