Louisville, KY – April 16, 2021 – Eighty volunteers from Baptist Health came out to help clean up Brown Park today as part of Mayor Fischer’s Give A Day â”‚ Mayor’s Week of Service.

Mayor Fischer himself came out today to take part and meet and greet volunteers.

The clean-up has been an annual event for employees of Baptist Health, who look forward to serving the community and making a difference.

“Brown Park is a wonderful resource for our community – a place to exercise, a quiet reading spot, or a retreat to just enjoy nature. Baptist Health Louisville is proud to be a part of keeping Brown Park beautiful and giving back to the community as part of the Mayor’s Give A Day event,” said Baptist Health Louisville Environmental Services Director James Galloway.

Volunteers assisted by picking up trash, sprucing up landscaping by cleaning up leaves, twigs, small limbs and other natural debris, and some even pulled weeds. Baptist Health Louisville provided the supplies, and also gave t-shirts to those in attendance.

“We are so lucky to have such a beautiful park so close to Baptist Health Louisville,” said Baptist Health Louisville Chief Operating Officer Gretchen Leiterman. “To the employees and everyone else who so generously volunteered their time today, thank you for rolling up your sleeves to keep the park clean and beautiful for all to enjoy. And thank you Mayor Fischer for coming today with your team to support the event. We are honored to be a part of this initiative.”
