    With the recent snow and cold that has struck Louisville this past week, not every aspect of the severe winter weather has been celebrated with a cup of hot chocolate and snuggling up with a good book by the fire place. Mayor Greg Fischer would like to take this opportunity to recognize the many acts of compassion taking place around the city that are easing the effect of sever winter weather this week. The Louisville Snow Angel Contest is an opportunity to share these personal stories and acts of compassion.  

    Upon visiting the homeless citizens of St. John Center this week, the Mayor was inspired to seek out the many acts of compassion that keep the city working in challenging circumstances amoung the midsts of the snow, ice and extreme temperatures. However, these acts are not just limited to winter related mayhem but can be used to donate and help fund homeless shelters as well as programs like St. John Center. 

    In an effort to highlight these acts of compassion, the Mayor has taken to social media. Whether it’s shoveling a driveway, digging a car out of it’s spot, or watching the neighbor’s kids who are home with a snow day while parents head to work, opportunities to lend a hand this week have been every where you look. Use #LouisvilleSnowAngel on Instagram or Twitter, and make sure to tag Mayor Greg Fischer @louisvillemayor. Participants can nominate a friend, neighbor or coworker for their “Snow Angel Stories.” You can also post on the Mayor’s Facebook Page with the hashtag #LouisvilleSnowAngel, details and photos are welcome.

     

    The contest will close on Friday, Jan. 19th, and the compassionate contest winner will be able to bring their friends and family to enjoy the use of the Mayor’s suite at Slugger Field on a warm day in the spring or summer.
